Leadership in the Disciplinary Relationship.
Goddard, Corday T.
The nature of the relationship between the disciplinarian (leader) and the disciplined is examined within the context of the role of student staff in college and university residence halls. The manner in which a resident assistant tells and sells, and participates and delegates will have a significant impact on their ability to lead. The proper developmental approach to the discipline process will allow the leader to emerge, but if avoided, mires the disciplinarian and the disciplined in a bog of bad feelings and ill will. Further, if the communication skills of the disciplinarian are poor, the disciplinarian will never be perceived as a leader by the other party. Thus, communication which invites interaction with others that is sincere and reflects genuine concern for those under authority is desirable. Finally, what is required of a true leader is the firm and total belief in, and commitment to, a philosophical approach that is both intrinsically valuing of all human beings and at the same time enlightening, empowering, and uplifting for everyone involved.
