An Examination of Educational and Familial Factors in Leadership Development
Balikçi, Abdullah
Universal Journal of Educational Research, v6 n2 p265-271 2018
In this study, family attitudes and behaviours, along with educational factors during school years, which are believed to have an effect on the development of leadership, are researched. In the study, the qualitative research method and phenomenological model have been applied. The participants were identified as one female and one male student by means of the snowball and convenience sampling methods. In the study, two fundamental factors, namely the familial and educational factors, were determined as supporting the development of leadership in students. In this context, it was observed that families had a democratic attitude towards their children, that they displayed supportive behaviour towards them, and that they gave them guidance in a healthy communicative environment. As for in schools, it was observed that teachers gave the students duties in educational, social and sporting exercises and that they encouraged them to take part in various activities.
