‘Resilience in the Face of Extreme Threats and Events: A Collaborative Leadership Challenge?’ examined the pre-event phase of collaboration in which horizontal relationships across organizational boundaries are more dominant than hierarchical relationships. Findings indicated that collaboration presented a leadership challenge in planning for crisis events across organisational boundaries. There was an expectation that either the police or Local Authority would take on the role of ‘leader’. It was found that collaborative forums faced similar challenges to other collaborative structures such as goal alignment, cultural issues and politicking an area under explored and theorised in the field of resilience at this time.
