The Effects of Vocational Leadership Development for Individuals Who Participated in the Ohio Vocational Education Leadership Institute.
Leimbach, Gale John
The effects of vocational leadership development were studied for 23 Fellows enrolled in the 1992 Ohio Vocational Education Leadership Institute (OVELI). A literature review focused on four components: leadership styles, educational leadership development, vocational leadership development, and visionary leadership development. The Leadership Behavior Questionnaire was administered as the pretest and posttest to measure respondents' answers to the leadership processes exhibited. Mean posttest scores increased slightly over the pretest scores. Immediate supervisors perceived no significant differences between the pretest and posttest mean scores. Low to moderate relationships were reported between selected personalogical variables and the visionary leadership scores. OVELI participants showed growth in several areas of visionary leadership. Gender did not seem to make a difference. The immediate supervisors tended to report stronger visionary leadership development of the OVELI Fellows than the Fellows reported of themselves. When OVELI was concluded, the Fellows perceived themselves having higher visionary leadership skills than at the beginning of the institute. Recommendations were made to follow up the classes of Fellows and study the OVELI curriculum to strengthen the development of the specific leadership areas required of visionary leaders.
