Minority Leadership Training: Evaluation and Analysis of a Five-State Program. An Interim Report.
White, Dorothy J.; And Others
Findings of a study that evaluated a five-state minority leadership program, the Southeastern Minority Trainer of Trainers Program, are presented in this paper. The Minority Leadership Development workshops were conducted from July 1991 to January 1992 in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, and Tennessee. The project goals were to facilitate leadership development among a predominantly African-American population in the region and to determine effective methods for leadership training. A total of 741 workshop participants completed two instruments: a Workshop Participants Survey (WPS) that was administered at the beginning, and a Leadership Attributes Inventory (LAI) administered at the end of the workshops. Factor analysis of the data was compared to an earlier study (Liang, 1990) conducted in Minnesota. In the southeastern sample, the management skills factor accounted for the greatest amount of variance, whereas the social skills and characteristics factor accounted for the most variance in the Minnesota sample. The findings raise questions whether differences between factors are related to differences between individual and leadership expectations or to regional/cultural differences. Ten tables and two figures are included. (LMI)
