Transformational Leadership: The Nexus between Faith and Classroom Leadership
White, Bobbie Ann Adair; Pearson, Kerri; Bledsoe, Christie; Hendricks, Randy
Christian Higher Education, v16 n5 p276-284 2017
Transformational leadership is well documented in organizational and business literature. Classroom and faith-based applications are more recent phenomena. The authors of this mixed-methods study explored professor behaviors and characteristics perceived as transformational in students' faith and focused on transformational leadership in the classroom at a faith-based institution. Thirty-four undergraduate students completed surveys containing open-ended and forced-choice questions; the findings highlighted the importance of compassion, optimism, encouragement, and openness as behaviors that facilitated faith transformation.
