The international research (OECD PISA, TIMSS, PIRLS) shown, that the results of Lithuanian school children are decreasing. The international research ground this fact by showing a strong connection between the learning motivation of teachers-leaders and their students, as teachers are creating the teaching (learning) environment, encouraging the student initiatives, creating the conditions for the creative activities, etc. Therefore, each teacher has to be a professional, irrespective at the level of education system he would be working on. As it is noted in the ‘The State Progress Strategy 'Lithuania 2030', one of the top priority spheres during the next two decades is an intelligent society, providing it with vast possibilities to learn, integrate and compete in the international space. The preparation of pre-service teachers, as well as the other spheres has to relate to the needs of the ever-changing society. Therefore, recently, more and more attention is given to proper vocational training of pre-service teachers, focusing on the development of their leadership abilities. Therefore, this paper analyses pre-service teacher’s leadership style and its connection with pedagogical professionalism.
