Ha pasado por doble evaluación ciega, evaluación de presentación oral y evaluación de la editorial. Abstract: For years, capacity building of people involved in rural development projects is a factor often included in their formulation, design and management, under the local and endogenous development approach and seeking sustainability of actions. In this context, leadership development is considered key to capacity building in rural areas. While traditionally this has been addressed through the development of leaders¿ intrapersonal capacity, now it is considered that the development of interpersonal and relational skills is essential for the exercise of effective leadership, relating these concepts to the development of human, social and system capital. In addition, many of the current theories of leadership focus not only on the leader but in the processes between leader and followers. These processes are discussed in the case of a leadership development project with an organization of Aymara women artisans, comprising 21 groups and 300 women, in which we study the different leadership styles and their consequences in the process of capacity building and the development of the organization.
