Effective leaders understand that “You can't do it alone.” This special issue provides an opportunity to explore the relationship between leaders and their constituents, and understand how leaders get people to collaborate and struggle together for mutual aspirations within the context of a group or team. Some of the issues to be investigated include: How is leadership effectively shared and distributed in high-performing teams? What does leadership look like within teams of people working across virtual workplaces?
What factors build or hinder the development of trust and respect between leaders and their teams and their members? What are the mechanisms for leaders effectively sharing power, discretion and latitude with team members?
How do leaders share information and resources without abdicating responsibility?
What factors influence alignment between the aims of leaders and the aspirations of their teams? What unique cross-cultural issues impact the relationship between leaders and their teams? Special attention should be paid to the interaction of leaders (leadership) and teams rather than simply focusing simply on leaders and/or teamwork.
