Leadership conceptualization: an approach from the educational practice

This article deals with the conceptualization of leadership obtained from the discourse generated in educational practice by teachers and by management teams in Aragon. The objective is to know their understanding of leadership and the connotations it holds that perception. The methodology of this study is mixed and the analysis carried out in the research is descriptive. The results show that leadership is a complex concept and that most of the teachers defines it as the ability to lead. But despite this overview, teachers have different views on the meaning of leadership –ability to lead–, and we are concerned with this fact because it affects the implementation of leadership, reducing its exercise to an intuitive practice.

Key words
Perception, Leadership, Management teams, Teachers, School organization.
