Shared leadership is when there are multiple people involved in governing what ever it is that needs to be governed. Why it's important is that multiple people have a say in what happens in the area that they are governing. Multiple opinions working together to try to make the government better. If only one person was the leader, then it's likely that they would abuse their power and things would then go bad because things would only go the way that the leader wants it to go and not the people. So that is why having a shared leadership government is important because many smart minds can then come together and discuss what is best for the people that they are governing. If only one person is the leader then the future can become dystopian, if there are more than one, then the future can indeed become a happier place than what it is today.
