Students' Self-Identified Long-Term Leadership Development Goals: An Analysis by Gender and Race
Rosch, David M.; Boyd, Barry L.; Duran, Kristina M.
Journal of Leadership Education, v13 n3 p17-33 Sum 2014
Leadership development goal statements of 92 undergraduate students enrolled in a multi-year self-directed leadership development program were analyzed using content and thematic analyses to investigate patterns of similarities and differences across gender and race. This qualitative analysis utilized a theoretical framework that approached leadership typed traits, skills, or behaviors (Northouse, 2009). Significant differences emerged by gender; women were more interested in developing leadership-oriented traits while men displayed more interest in developing specific skills. No differences emerged across racial groups.
