This chapter outlines the process by which community leaders engage with regeneration partnerships through leadership coalitions. It describes a cycle of leadership, which operates differently in areas with different histories of community activity, and considers how far leaders relate to their wider constituency and how they deal with issues of succession. It uses Hirschman's conceptual framework of exit, voice, and loyalty to explore the way in which leaders negotiate partnerships at different points in the leadership cycle. It discusses how far community leaders actually become part of local leadership coalitions rather than being left on the margins.

Keywords:   community leaders, regeneration partnerships, leadership coalitions, succession, Hirschman, leadership
