In recent years, profuse publications that contribute to understanding transformational and charismatic leadership have emerged, all of which have led to the germination of different theories, approaches and models that explain this phenomenon from diverse contexts and viewpoints. The purpose of this article is to review the most relevant theoretical contributions about charismatic and transformational leadership. To achieve this, secondary sources were used (a literature review), primarily an auscultation of the main theoretical and empirical publications of greatest impact taken from indexed journals (mainly ISI, Scopus and SciELO) as well as some specialized books. Among the essential findings, it is possible to highlight what occurs with transformational and charismatic leadership. While the former affects predominantly the field of culture or organizational development, the second places its focus on the authentic leader, visualized as a spiritual figure. However, these viewpoints complement each other, and is not feasible to claim that one is better than the other, because many people think that charisma is inherent and intrinsic to transformational leadership. © 2014, Universidad del Zulia.
