Leadership Development of Women Preparing for Ministry
Johns, Loretta; Watson, Janice
Journal of Research on Christian Education, v15 n2 p111-142 2006
This mixed-methods study investigates the leadership development and leadership skills of women graduate students at a theological seminary. Through the "Student Leadership Practices Inventory" (Student LPI) and "Leadership Competency Inventory" (LCI), demographic questionnaire, and focus group interviews, the researchers explored the leadership training the women had received and their perception of their leadership abilities and development needs. The findings showed that the women reported frequently demonstrated exemplary leadership practices and many possessed significant leadership experience. Participants scored highest on competencies utilizing people skills and lowest in areas reflecting competence in cognitive or strategic skills. While exposed to formal leadership education they reported receiving their leadership education primarily through observation and experience. (Contains 5 tables.)
