Cited by George Por:

"A system has 'collective leadership' when people are attuned to each other so well that, even when separate, they naturally act in harmony with each other and the goals of the common enterprise. Most leadership teams, including those at senior levels, are far from fulfilling their potential. They meet as individuals, squeezing time from their more urgent work, debating from their individual perspectives and concentrating on their individual domains of authority. Their actions, and the actions of those who report to them, consequently take place at cross-purposes, and they often seem trapped in cycles of opposition and breakdown." (Isaacs, 2005)
