by Oursler, Jean A., Ph.D., The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, 2020, 117; 27958550
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this quantitative study was to determine the potential role self-leadership could play as measured by the Revised Self-Leadership Questionnaire (RSLQ) in identifying the effectiveness of membership recruiters in a nonprofit organization that recruits for members who meet specific qualifications. Specifically, this study explored the ability self-leadership variables to predict if a membership recruiter recruits the number of members a nonprofit organization requires. There were 84 membership recruiters divided into two known groups. Membership recruiters in Group 1 met the requirements for membership recruitment. Membership recruiters in Group 2 did not. A stepwise discriminant function analysis was used to determine what variables, if any, would differentiate between these two known groups. There were 55 independent variables. Discriminant scores were used to predict the probably group classification. The results showed there were three significant variables, one question from the RSLQ, and two demographic variables. Overall, 79.8% of membership recruiters were correctly classified.
