The purpose of this descriptive study is to explore the influence shared-leadership has on entry-level retail employees' performance behavior between the ages of 18 and 30. Shared-leadership is a term utilized for collective tasks sharing; it implies being associated in a collaborative way to create common purpose. Leadership is distributed while workers carry out tasks within the organization with the type of leadership selected (Martin, Liao, & Cambell, 2013). Shared-leadership can also be defined as minimizing employees' dissatisfaction and at the same time, pursuing their well-being consistently (Loewenstein, 2013). Five different types of leadership have been identified with shared-leadership: Directive, transformational, transaction-al, transitional and empowering.
Shared-leadership can be described in a few simple words: Do no harm‖, ―Do good‖ consistently. (Manz, et al, 2014), Shared-leadership is a term often utilized for collaborative and task sharing. It may also be defined as follows: preventing harm to others and aiming for their well-being consistently. This study will also analyze happiness as it relates to shared-leadership. Happiness connected to shared-leadership can be defined as well-being of the soul and upholding moral standards when applied to this leadership model. Employers are hugely affected by retail employees' displeasure in the workplace. Discontent in the workplace may lead to more serious illness issues such as depressive disorder, absenteeism, low productivity which stresses the importance of this study's urgency. Young adults have often received negative treatment with very little opportunities for career advancement because organizations may have associated them with unproductivity. The research approach selected to explore the influence of shared-leadership on happiness and displeasure will take the form of a descriptive model with a quantitative methodology via Survey Monkey. The study can potentially aid practitioners in being more aware of discontent among people and how shared-leadership influences mood and productivity.
