Abstract or Introduction
The purpose of this descriptive study is to explore the influence shared-leadership has on the performance behavior of retail entry level employees between the ages of 18 and 30. The corporations being studied include clothing and food chain retail department stores. Shared-leadership is a term utilized for collaborative and task sharing. It may also be defined as follows: preventing harm to employees and aiming for their well-being consistently. Five different types of leadership have been identified in terms of shared-leadership: Directive, transformational, transactional, transitional and empowering. 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 all 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 associate 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 research can potentially aid practitioners in being more aware of discontent among young retail employees and how shared-leadership influences mood and productivity. The research findings demonstrated that employees between the age of 18 and 30 have genuinely embraced the shared-leadership model.
