Within the emerging leaderships there is no doubt that distributed leadership (DL) is a relevant concept for culture of the educational sector. DL is understood as a form of shared leadership that is based on a more collective and inclusive philosophy of traditional leadership theory that focuses on the skills, traits and behaviours of the leading individuals. The objective of this communication is to determine the DL profiles of the directors of some primary schools in Madrid. Method.

The exhibition comprises a total of 23 schools (16 Public schools and 7 colleges) and 13 principals and 10 directors. In the community of Madrid Capital, Spain. Results.
