Serving Those Seeking Personal Growth: A Rationale and Model for Leadership Training and Laboratory Groups in the Community Colleges.
Nyman, Sheldon J.; Ohlendorf, Dawn
The speech classes in leadership training described in this paper consist of laboratory groups that give experiential training in interpersonal communication skills. These groups, comprised of students, faculty, administrators, and staff and community members, function under the direction of student facilitators who are intensively trained in the leadership class and who are supervised by instructors and tutors. The paper describes the process involved in the leadership class as follows: first, there is laboratory training for the students; then, the students become facilitators and process observers; finally, after passing a competency-based test, these students become part of a leadership team for a group. In conclusion, the paper describes a model program that has operated with 200 students per semester for seven years and examines the research that has been conducted on the model. (Author/MAI)
