The Covid-19 pandemic has tested every area of daily life for the world’s population. This narrative study will be of value and interest to an emerging body of empirical evidence that will explore the leadership of spontaneous volunteer activity during a global pandemic. Participants told their stories, and these narratives form the focus of this research, exploring leadership in this group. Empirical evidence confirms that leadership was effective in producing successful results, and resulted from, a knowledge of the community, leader skill, authentic behaviours, and an adaptive style, however no one style of leadership is identified. There is a need for further research into this area of leadership, to understand how leadership of spontaneous volunteers can be effective to the community, in crises and disaster response.
