High School Counselors' Views of Their Leadership Behaviors: A Q Methodology Study
Janson, Chris
Professional School Counseling, v13 n2 p86-97 Dec 2009
There has been a growing body of professional literature regarding the importance of school counselors behaving as leaders in schools. This study builds on that professional literature by investigating how high school counselors perceive their own leadership behaviors. Q methodology was used to develop 40 opinion statements reflecting school counselor leadership behaviors, and 49 high school counselors then sorted the statements. Data analysis identified four distinct viewpoints of school counselor leadership behaviors. Implications for school counselors and counselor educators are discussed. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
