THE JUNIOR COLLEGE PRESIDENT'S JOB--AN ANALYSIS OF PERCEIVED JOB PERFORMANCE AND POSSIBLE INFLUENCING VARIABLES.
GRAHAM, ROBERT GENE
AFTER SURVEYING THE LITERATURE ON LEADERSHIP QUALITIES, THE AUTHOR ANALYZED THEM ACCORDING TO THE LEADER'S OWN PERCEPTION OF HIS ACTIVITIES. QUESTIONNAIRES WITH 64 ITEMS WENT TO 242 JUNIOR COLLEGE PRESIDENTS, OF WHOM 194 REPLIED. THE 182 USABLE REPLIES WERE RANK ORDERED BY THREE VARIABLES (SCHOOL SIZE, LOCATION, AND REPORTING AUTHORITY) AND BY FIVE AREAS OF ADMINISTRATION (PLANNING, ORGANIZING, LEADING, CONTROLLING, AND ASSESSING). THE RESPONDENT INDICATED THE DEGREE OF IMPORTANCE HE ATTACHED TO EACH DUTY AND NOTED THOSE HE DELEGATED. DELEGATED DUTIES WERE GIVEN A RATING OF 0, WHILE THOSE CONSIDERED MOST IMPORTANT WERE RATED AT 6. IN THE LARGER SCHOOLS, CERTAIN ITEMS RECEIVED LESS IMPORTANCE (OR MORE DELEGATION). NO PARTICULAR PATTERN OF RESPONSE WAS SHOWN BY GEOGRAPHIC AREA. THE REPLIES OF THE 110 PRESIDENTS ANSWERING TO A BOARD AND THE 72 ANSWERING TO A SUPERINTENDENT SHOWED A SLIGHT TENDENCY FOR THE LATTER TO FIND THEIR DUTIES MORE IMPORTANT THAN DID THE FORMER. IN THE ADMINISTRATIVE AREAS, ALL FOUND ASSESSMENT THE MOST IMPORTANT, FOLLOWED BY ORGANIZING, CONTROLLING, PLANNING, AND LEADING. ONLY SLIGHT DIFFERENCES WERE NOTED BY GEOGRAPHY OR REPORTING AUTHORITY. IMPLICATIONS OF THE FINDINGS WERE EXAMINED. THE QUESTIONNAIRE AND ITS COVERING LETTERS ARE APPENDED. THIS PH.D. DISSERTATION IS AVAILABLE AS DOCUMENT NO. 65-10,734 FOR $3.00 (MICROFILM) OR $7.40 (XEROGRAPHIC COPY) FROM UNIVERSITY MICROFILMS, INC., P.O. BOX 1346, ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN 48106. (HH)
