The paper reveals some aspects of the problem of forming a complex of qualities that characterize the phenomenon of creative leadership in school students. The interest in this problem is explained by the increased need of modern Russian society and its relevance in scientific psychological and pedagogical and socio-psychological problems. The prerequisite for the study was the contradiction between the urgent need for creative leaders in various spheres of production, management, in creative and spiritual life and the absence of a systematic purposeful state policy in this field. At the same time, it is stated that if in foreign science from the beginning of the 1960s, studies of the concept of creative leadership are carried out, but in Russian scientific thought, the concept of creative leadership is still poorly understood from the point of view of its formation. Several aspects of the problem of leadership are reviewed, such as the ability of a leader to lead other people to solve various problems, including creative ones; the concept of creativity is analyzed as the ability to think in an original, non-standard, creative way, to generate innovative cultural products. The phenomenon of creative leadership is considered by the authors, first of all, as a person’s expressed ability to lead a group of people to achieve various goals that are important for this group, to implement creative ideas and projects, while the directions, methods, means of their implementation are innovative. The paper presents the results of an experimental study conducted to determine the nature of the relationship between creative leadership and creative thinking. The novelty of the study is determined by the use of an original series of methods that allow for a comprehensive assessment of the formation of creative leadership in school students and the presence of a correlation between the indicators of the creative leadership methodology with various factors characterizing creative thinking.
