The article discusses the application of collective leadership or the theory of collective behavior to modern management. It describes a service called As One, which aims to help minimize and manage the people-related risks of strategy execution. Distinct archetypes of organizational relationships culled from 60 case studies are presented, which include landlords and tenants, community organizer and volunteers, and conductor and orchestra. The role of a self-organizing map (SOM) in providing a taxonomy for collective leadership is addressed.
