Selected Leadership Dimensions of Management Personnel In Vocational Education, General Education, Industry, and The Military.
Moullette, John B.
As the roles and responsibilities of vocational education have increased and expanded it has become necessary to identify, select, educate and train leaders. Recognizing this need for leadership development this study assessed the behavior and the leadership dimensions of management in four occupational settings as reported by inservice management personnel in an opinion survey. Data were collected by using a revised Leader Behavior Disciption Questionnaire which consisted of 45 communications, human relations, and style and technique items whose tetrachoric correlation coefficients were relatively high between each item and the total dimension score. On the basis of 120 responses the hypothesis that there is no significant difference in total scores among leaders in the four occupations was accepted while the hypothesis that there is no significant difference in total scores among the three levels of leaders was rejected. As a conclusion it was stated that the four occupations are in agreement in their perceptions regarding the dimensions of communications, human relations, and style and technique. This Ed.D. dissertation was submitted to Rutgers University. (Author/JS)
