How do you build teams that are highly adaptive and best draw upon the knowledge, skills and abilities of team members in ways that achieve superior performance? Recent research turns traditional notions of leadership on its head.

In this edition of Smith Business Close-Up with the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business, Professor Paul Tesluk shares how your organization can gain competitive advantage by cultivating shared leadership in your teams.

Tesluk is the Ralph J. Tyser Professor of Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management in the Department of Management and Organization at the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. He is currently chair of the Department of Management and Organization at Smith and co-director of the newly formed Center for Leadership, Innovation and Change.
