Contrasting American and Native American Views of Leadership.
Bryant, Miles T.
This paper constructs opposing views of leadership between what can be understood as mainstream American perspectives and those of selected Native Americans. American leadership values were deduced by examining selected aspects of the National Association of Secondary School Principals Assessment Center; selected Native American leadership values were derived from a total of 12 interviews with members of 6 tribes from the Great Plains and from participant observation. The research identified six themes that characterized Native American leadership: decentralization, recognition of the immanent value of all things, noninterference, self-deflection, a reduced sense of the importance of time, and a collectivist decision-making approach.
