Acculturation and Leadership Styles of Elected Latino Leaders
Trevino, Dale
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Colorado at Denver
Given the increased demographic change of Latinos in our society, the need for understanding who they are, how they live, and more importantly how they lead has never been more urgent. Answers regarding how Latinos lead warrant further empirical research and investigation. The purpose of this exploratory study was to examine how a group of elected Latino leaders scored on an acculturation and leadership scale. It also provides a better understanding of how elected Latino leaders define and experience leadership based on their acculturation level and leadership styles. This study also adds to the current body of literature on Latino leadership. Two surveys were administered to a sample of elected Latino leaders to find out how they scored on the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire and the Acculturation Rating Scale of Mexican Americans II, to examine how acculturation is associated with leadership styles, and to identify how acculturation gets expressed between leadership styles of elected Latino leaders. A chi-square analysis for independence was used to measure the association of acculturation level and leadership style among this sample. The findings confirm an association between acculturation level and leadership style. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
