This is an article I wrote for Fast Company magazine about shared leadership. It explains how real teams share leadership, that they’re always not dominated by a single leader – even under the most testing conditions including emergencies.

I use the extraordinary rescue of Apollo 13 to illustrate my point with six examples of NASA’s Mission Control team displaying shared leadership in action. I hope you enjoy it.

By the way, there is a whole chapter dedicated to the Apollo 13 story and how it illustrates my Seven-Principle (7P) team building action model. This article draws on that chapter. You will find it in Book Two of my trilogy, How To Build Winning Teams Again And Again.
