This indicates the lack of understanding regarding the experiential factors of individuals dealing with challenging problems in educational change by adopting collaborative leadership approaches. Additionally, how these experiential factors develop over time is possible to discern. In this study, phenomenological approach, a qualitative method, is used to explore the lived experiences of exigent problems for individuals in educational change development with the focus on collaborative leadership process. This current study used the available data from the international longitudinal project titled “Collaborative Leading of The Unexpected in The Changing Education” (LED) (2015 – 2018).

These findings reveal important and intriguing explanations to what and how the participants experienced over time in the affective process of leadership executed in collaboration in real-life educational change circumstances.
