A Longitudinal Study Examining Changes in Students' Leadership Behavior
Posner, Barry Z.
Journal of College Student Development, v50 n5 p551-563 Sep-Oct 2009
This study investigated the impact of a leadership development program in students' first year with the subsequent leadership behaviors of those students in their senior year. Significant changes were reported in the frequency of engaging in leadership behaviors from freshman to senior years. No differences were found on the basis of gender. In addition, significant differences in leadership behaviors were found between seniors who had participated in the leadership development program with a control group of seniors who had not participated. Results supported the impact of a formal leadership program upon students' leadership development. (Contains 6 tables.)
