An Evaluation of Leadership Training in Louisiana.
Focusing on a professional continuing education program in group discussion leadership skills for Louisiana public health workers, this study assessed the overall value of training to participants, and sought relationships between certain background characteristics and the value ascribed to the training experience. The Kropp-Verner Evaluation Scale and a personal data sheet were administered to 118 local and 37 state personnel who had completed training. Overall ratings of training were generally quite high. Three variables--sex, profession or occupation, and location of training sessions--were associated with perceived value of training. The variables of age, formal education, affiliation (state or local), years of experience in public health, and previous knowledge methods and techniques, proved insignificant. A relative lack of significant differences indicated the program's wide appeal among public health personnel. (LY)
