The transference of leadership style through the top management team of a large urban college: An analysis using the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire

by Rogers, Christopher W., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2007, 155 pages; 3274684


This research study will examine the transference of leadership style through the top levels of the management team at Miami Dade College. To gather the necessary information the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire MLQ5X will be used. The MLQ has been in use for nearly three decades and is considered to be the best instrument available for examining the leadership styles of participants; the MLQ has proven itself to be valid and reliable (Carless, 1998; Tejeda and Scandura, 2000; Tepper and Percy, 1994). The setting for the research is Miami Dade College, the largest brick and mortar college in the United States. MDC currently operates eight campuses and several outreach centers. The information gathered and the new knowledge created as a result of this research study can be used at MDC and other similar settings to improve overall leadership by improving staffing, selection, training, and leader communication patterns.
