Leadership preferences of a Generation Y African American cohort

by Wells, David D., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2011, 142 pages; 3487545


There has been a lack of academic research focusing on Generation Y African Americans. The purpose of this study was to investigate the leadership preferences of Generation Y African Americans and how those preferences compare to those of other ethnicities within Generation Y. The 130 participants used in this study were among Zoomerang panelists born between 1977 and 1992. The study involved obtaining data through questionnaires. The data collected were analyzed and the findings show that African Americans and other ethnicities in Generation Y view the components of leadership similarly. Participants largely agreed that management of self was important and they viewed management of others as less important.
