Leader Effectiveness Index Manual.
Moss, Jerome, Jr.; And Others
The "Leader Effectiveness Index (LEI) is a multirater instrument designed to assess the effectiveness of leadership performance of vocational educators. It consists of seven items. The first six items are statements of six broad tasks (or responsibilities) of a leader in vocational education: (1) inspires shared vision and establishes standards; (2) fosters unity, collaboration, and ownership and recognizes individual and team contributions; (3) exercises power effectively and empowers others to act; (4) exerts external influence to set the right context for the organization; (5) establishes an environment conducive to learning; and (6) satisfies the job-related needs of individuals in the organization. The seventh item rates the overall leadership performance of the person being rated. This manual is intended for use by persons who wish to learn more about the LEI. It contains the following sections: (1) the conceptualization that provides the rationale for the instrument; (2) an explanation of how the instrument is to be used; (3) a report of the instrument's development and psychometric characteristics; and (4) a description of the process used to establish an appropriate norm group. The manual also provides directions for preparing an effectiveness rating instrument, 51 references, the LEI, an example of an individualized report, and a table for converting LEI raw scores to normalized t-scores.
