    The actual world crisis is not a financial crisis (as the majority of people believe) but a decision making crisis. Decision making is guided by values and the interrogative point is about the values of actual “leaders”.This article has the objective to clarify some leadership aspects that must be putted into discussion. One of these aspects is that effective leadership does not suffer in relation to techniques but on the subject of categorical values. Another one is that leadership often bases on image rather than on responsibility and work. A further topic is the rethinking of the dichotomist vision management-leadership, as the classical literature of management has defined.We know very well that leaders are influent on the context with which interact and considering this we have defined them as relevant suprasystems.All this issues are contextualized in Albanian environment explaining the colors of Albanian leadership between myth and reality.This contribution evidences leadership old and new interpretative patterns aiming an improvement not only to the education system but also to the practice of management. Furthermore, is not bounded only in Albanian leadership thesis, but can contribute in multicultural organizations as well.
