Leadershift is about adapting and changing traditional models of leadership in response to the influence of mass collaboration. Mass collaboration is a form of collective action which occurs when large numbers of people work independently on a single project, exemplified by websites such as YouTube, Facebook and Second Life. As the traditional models of working are radically altered those in leadership roles need to understand their place in this new hierarchy and how to respond. Mass collaboration requires a form of leadership that is prepared to let go of the experience, expertise and control it holds precious and be able to see mass participation as an opportunity to create value rather than a threat to its existence.

"Gobillot, a leadership consultant, defines mass collaboration as the collective actions of large numbers of people accomplishing goals independent of organizations, using social media technology, wikis, and virtual worlds such as Second Life. He explains what this phenomenon means for leaders in the new communal landscape and exhorts leaders in private, public, and nonprofit organizations to adapt to this new paradigm by letting go of control. He reviews trends shaping mass collaboration: multiple generations are increasingly working alongside each other, expertise is now found outside the organization as well as inside, and organizations must fight for the attention of employees and customers. The rest of the book explains how leaders can fulfill their roles in the age of mass collaboration and how they must shift their priorities. Brief chapter summaries and an annotated list of recommended books are included." -- Book News Inc.
