Management and Personal Skills Perceived Essential for Administrators by Women High School and College Administrators.
Albertson, Roxanne M.; And Others
A survey of women administrators in either physical education or athletics sought to ascertain the relative importance they placed on five administrative components: (1) management skills; (2) human relations techniques; (3) group skills; (4) personal characteristics; and (5) personal motivation. Subjects were 117 women athletic directors or physical education administrators in Texas high schools, junior colleges, and universities. A four point scale ranging from "always essential" to "not essential" was used to determine the relative importance each respondent placed on each item for the success of an athletic or physical education program. Each of the groups indicated management skills, human relations, personal characteristics, and group skills as "always essential" significantly more often than they indicated these components as "less essential." In the personal motivation component, only women college athletic administrators indicated it as "always essential" for success of an athletic program. Results are presented in tables and graphs accompanied by narrative analysis. Comparisons are made where appropriate between women college and high school administrators and between women athletic and physical education administrators on the importance of each management component. Demographic variables are also discussed. (JD)
