Abstract

Collaborative leadership in the public sphere is written about as if it is a solution to an agreed-upon, stable series of ‘complex’ problems. This paper will argue that both theorists and practitioners would benefit from viewing the collaborative challenge as a politically charged, ideological space, where the case for collaboration must be made with and against other ideological leadership narratives. Such a view might highlight the fragilities, as well as opportunities, of constituting a collaborative leadership narrative.
