TORRADO QUINTELA, Julio. An Integrated Vision of Peer Leadership in Sports Teams: A Review. Escritos de Psicología [online]. 2012, vol.5, n.2, pp.12-19. ISSN 1989-3809.

In general, studies on sports leadership have focused on the coach, paying less attention to the leadership shown by some athletes in relation to their peers. However, their daily practice shows us the importance in sports teams of peer leaders, due to their influence on the other players and their impact on all the group processes. This study provides a theoretical overview of the literature, focusing on advances in the study of peer leadership in relation to the conceptual issues and the assessment systems used. Specifically, it offers an integrated vision, at the theoretical and methodological level, based on recent publications, which allows us to establish a current point of reference and suggests future lines of research.
