CONGRUENCE AND DISSONANCE IN THE ECOLOGY OF EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATORS AS A BASIS FOR DISCRIMINATING BETWEEN PATTERNS OF LEADERSHIP BEHAVIOR.
OLSON, GARY FRANKLIN
IN AN EXPLORATORY STUDY OF LEADERSHIP BEHAVIOR AND THE DIMENSIONS OF INTERACTION BETWEEN EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATORS AND THEIR ACADEMIC WORK ENVIRONMENT, ANALYSIS WAS MADE OF MAILED QUESTIONNAIRE RESPONSE DATA FROM A RANDOMLY SELECTED SAMPLE OF 83 SECONDARY SCHOOL PRINCIPALS (83 PERCENT OF 100 SURVEYED) AND TEN TEACHERS FROM EACH RESPONDING SCHOOL. FINDINGS CONFIRMED THE STUDY'S BASIC HYPOTHESIS THAT PRINCIPALS WHO ARE THE MOST EFFECTIVE LEADERS ARE SIGNIFICANTLY MORE CONGRUENT WITH THEIR ENVIRONMENT THAN THE LEAST EFFECTIVE LEADERS. DISCRIMINATING VARIABLES INCLUDED PERSONALITY NEEDS AND ENVIRONMENTAL PRESS. FURTHER RESEARCH IS SUGGESTED SO THAT FINDINGS OF THE STUDY WILL HAVE PRACTICAL AS WELL AS THEORETICAL SIGNIFICANCE. (JK)
