A STUDY OF 4-H CLUB LEADERS' PERCEPTION OF THEIR LEADERSHIP RESPONSIBILITIES IN WARREN COUNTY, NEW YORK.
CHAPLIN, GLENN DAVID
THE PURPOSE OF THIS STUDY WAS TO DETERMINE THE PERCEPTION THAT LOCAL 4-H CLUB LEADERS HAVE OF 36 LEADERSHIP RESPONSIBILITIES COMPRISING A ROLE MODEL, AND THE EXTENT TO WHICH SELECTED FACTORS WERE ASSOCIATED WITH LEADERS' PERCEPTIONS. A MAIL QUESTIONNAIRE WAS USED TO COLLECT DATA FROM ALL 4-H LEADERS WHO HAD SERVED AT LEAST ONE YEAR IN THE WARREN COUNTY 4-H PROGRAM. SEVENTY PERCENT OF THE 90 POSSIBLE LEADERS RESPONDED. RESULTS SHOWED THAT ALL 36 RESPONSIBILITIES WERE ACCEPTED AND IMPLEMENTED BY THE LEADERS, WITH VARYING DEGREES OF COMPETENCE AND IMPORTANCE ASSIGNED TO EACH RESPONSIBILITY. LEADERS ASSIGNED GREATER IMPORTANCE TO TEACHING AND SELF-IMPROVEMENT RESPONSIBILITIES THAN TO THOSE ASSOCIATED WITH ORGANIZATION, SUPERVISION, AND PROMOTION. SEVEN HYPOTHESES WERE FORMULATED TO TEST THE EXTENT TO WHICH SELECTED FACTORS WERE ASSOCIATED WITH LEADERS' PERCEIVED RELATIVE IMPORTANCE OF THEIR LEADERSHIP ROLE. FINDINGS SUPPORT THE ASSUMPTION THAT MORE EFFECTIVELY DESIGNED LEADER TRAINING PROGRAMS ARE NEEDED FOR LOCAL 4-H CLUB LEADERS.
