Case study on followership and leadership in college teachers

by Howell, John, Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2007, 105 pages; 3288776


The descriptive, correlational survey was conducted to explore the relationship between college teachers' perceived levels of practice, education, and reported followership—leadership characteristics. Efforts were made to include both classroom and online instructors so that we could see what the difference if any there was in the followership—leadership characteristics The Leadership and Style questionnaire was completed by a sample of college instructors in the Western United States. Perceived levels of practice were calculated from a magnitude rating scale. Descriptive and correlational statistics were used to determine the relationships between the demographic data and followership, leadership, and followership—leadership attributes reported by the respondents. No statistical significance was noted in any of the relationships.
