Leadership Skills Among the Gifted and Talented. 1985 Digest.
In this digest identification and development of leadership skills in gifted and talented students are examined. Leadership is analyzed and its scope expanded from qualities of one who leads to a more complex view of how a person exerts influence. Conceptions of task-oriented versus relationship-oriented leaders are considered. Ways in which teachers can identify leadership among gifted and talented students are noted, including interviews, leadership styles instruments, and nomination and/or rating by peers, teachers, self, or community group members. Comprehensive leadership development programs are analyzed in terms of knowledge, skills, and attitude components. Administrative arrangements for leadership training may range from one-day colloquia to year-long leadership programs. A brief list of resources concludes the digest. (CL)
