Analysis of Leadership Job Tasks with Mid-Level Leaders in Tennessee Community Colleges

Nancy A Ramsey, Tennessee State University

Abstract

This study examined the job leadership tasks which are important to the success of mid-level leaders (deans, department chairs and directors) in higher education. The research was conducted in thirteen community colleges in Tennessee using the leadership job tasks from The Leatherman Leadership Questionnaire. The Kruskal-Wallis H test was conducted to compare responses between academic mid-level leaders and non-academic mid-level leaders. The findings of the research provide support for a model for professional development which can be used in community colleges to improve the job performance of mid-level leaders.^
