Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A correlational analysis: Servant leadership and participation by volunteer leaders of credit unions
by Ghormley, James C., III, D.M., University of Phoenix, 2009, 156; 3376008
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this quantitative, correlational study was to determine if a relationship existed between servant leadership and participation among volunteer board members of credit unions. The Laub (1999) Organizational Leadership Survey (OLA) was used as the instrument to measure the presence and implementation of servant leadership; the Fiedler (1967) Least Preferred Coworker scale was used as the instrument to measure leadership style; and a validated Likert-type scale questionnaire (ALSPQ) was used to measure participation. The population for the study was the volunteer members of boards of directors taken from 15 credit unions located in the Southern California area. Significant correlations were found to exist between the seven servant leadership constructs and the 10 participation items of the ALSPQ.
