In this Idea Brief, authors review the literature on shared leadership (SL) and provide specific ideas for including SL in curriculum. SL is an emergent team property whereby leadership functions are distributed among the team’s members. Though relatively new to the groups and teams literatures, its strong and positive impact on performance has been well established in extant studies. To encourage and enable its inclusion in future leadership courses, authors first provide educators with key information regarding SL conceptualization, measurement, and findings. Next, they offer specific classroom recommendations, including the administration of a SL assessment tool with reflective discussion prompts. Authors conclude with the anticipated outcomes of implementing our recommendations.
