This chapter is about the different ways and relationships in which leadership needs to be, or can be, shared. It starts with a discussion of the most important and the only inescapable example of leadership sharing in the NHS — that between a chairman and general manager. It is this relationship that will be analysed in the usual three parts: ideal, difficulties, and steps towards the ideal. Then there will be a more general account of the nature and value of leadership sharing in other relationships.
