Preparing Leaders for the Future: A Development Program for Underrepresented Groups in Vocational Education. Volume I. Volume II.
Moss, Jerome, Jr.; And Others
This document is a 2-volume set of instructional materials for a 90-hour leadership development program for vocational educators that places special emphasis on underrepresented groups in vocational education. The two volumes of materials (here combined) are organized into three major sections as follows: introduction to the leadership development program, planning for leadership development, and developing leader attributes. The sections are in turn divided into 32 learning experiences (lessons) that each contain the following: statement of purpose and behavioral objective, instructor's plan and estimated time for each learning experience, bibliography, outline of content to be presented by instructors, list of materials/equipment required, master copies of overhead transparencies and student handouts, and out-of-class assignment. Section I consists of three lessons introducing the program (introduction to the program; system realities; and developing team-building and group facilitation skills). Section II contains six lessons on planning for leadership development (balancing life roles, introduction to leader attributes, assessing leader attributes, assessing personality type, formulating a leadership development plan, and using mentors). The first part of section III includes five lessons on developing personal characteristics (insightful, visionary, stress management, risk taking, and achievement oriented). In the second part of section III are seven interpersonal skills lessons (developing interpersonal sensitivity, motivating others, using assertive communication for leadership effectiveness, developing active listening skills for assertive communication and leadership, using effective presentation skills, and networking). Contents of the third part of section III are as follows: four lessons in a decision-making cluster (decision making, selecting the appropriate decision-making process, improving the ethical quality of organizational decisions, facilitating meetings); three lessons in a leadership styles cluster (selecting leadership styles, delegating tasks and responsibilities, leading through empowerment); and five lessons in a cluster on improving the organization (organizational planning, managing information, managing conflict, influencing system realities, and using the "Breakers Simulation" in applying leader attributes).
