A Causal Analysis of Attitudes Toward Leadership Training in a Classroom Setting. Occasional Paper No. 3.
Hunter, John E.; And Others
An analysis is presented of students' attitudes in a leadership training program and the relationships between those attitudes. Student attitudes toward the program facilitator as a person affected their attitudes toward that person as a teacher and role model, also affecting the student's sense of belonging in the group. Student's acceptance of others affected his/her sense of belonging and feelings of self-acceptance. Attitudes toward the class were affected by attitudes toward the facilitator as a role model and by a sense of belonging. Willingness to speak out in class was affected by the student's sense of belonging and feelings of self-acceptance. The use of skills outside of class depended on the student's attitude toward the course. Feelings of mastery depended on the student's willingness to speak out in the group and on the use of the learned skills outside of the class. Tables and figures delineating the analysis of this research are appended. (Authors/JD)
