Educational leadership is one of the key factors for the development of a high quality education. Based on an extensive review of the literature, our study explains the evoluttion of the principal models of leadership.
The most significant contributions are reviewed and the prosocial leadership model is highlighted as a way to overcome the limitations of other transformational leadership models.
We conclude by noting the enormous vitality of educational leadership in recent decades and its ability to assimilate the virtues of different models and eradicate its limitations. We propose to deepen the study of a transcendent leadership model to improve educational institutions, as some academics are already doing
