The purpose of this study was to assess the leadership practices or behaviors of FFA members participating in a leadership development workshop known as the Success Conference in Georgia. Leadership practices were determined using the "Student Leadership Practices Inventory" (LPI) (Kouzes & Posner, 1998). While success conference participants scored the highest on "encouraging the heart" (M = 23.77; SD = 4.18) and "enabling others to act" (M = 23.75; SD = 4.40), placing Georgia FFA members participating in the Success Conference at approximately the 45th and 35th percentile respectively for all Student LPI scores, this was slightly below Kouzes' and Posner's (1998) normative data for high school students. It is recommended that future leadership development opportunities focus on activities that foster collaboration, strengthen others, recognize the contributions of others, and celebrate team accomplishments.
