The article seeks to answer the question of whether it is possible to teach leadership in business schools. To do so, it presents three conceptions of leadership and their implications in terms of education. The first one conceives it as a set of attributes or innate qualities and sustains the impossibility of its teaching. The second, as a set of skills and behaviors and develops a vision of its teaching centered on the skills training. The third conceives it as a complex social relationship. The article proposes a way of teaching leadership based on a critical paradigm that allows to understand the complexity of the phenomenon, which questions its undesired effects, that overcomes the common places found in literature, and that reflects on the aims and implications of leadership activity.
