Leadership and Leader Behavior in Counseling: Neglected Skills
Paradise, Louis Vincent; Ceballos, Peggy T.; Hall, Stephanie
International Journal for the Advancement of Counselling, v32 n1 p46-55 Mar 2010
Leadership and leader behavior are important topics for any professional discipline. However, these issues have been neglected throughout the entire short history of counseling. Despite the fact that many counselors attain various leadership positions, little attention has been paid to training for leadership. While much has been written about the various roles of counselors, leadership and the behavior of leaders are rarely the focus. It is our contention that counselors, because of their unique training, can be effective leaders in a wide variety of settings. This article argues for a greater emphasis by counselor education on the role of counselor as leader.
