by Tonelli, Barbara-Leigh, Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2008, 129 pages; 3296744


Leadership styles vary within programs for at risk youth in the prevention of juvenile delinquency. There is a real need to identify directors' leadership style of such programs to optimize juvenile delinquency prevention, and discern the correlation between the programs being awarded Federal grant money for the prevention of juvenile delinquency. Although many Leadership theories exist, the focus of this dissertation will analyze transactional and transformational leadership models, synthesize the models comparisons and contrasts, and evaluate which leadership model is most widely implemented within programs for the prevention of juvenile delinquency that receive Federal grant money.
