Abstract:
The high turnover and retirement rates of K-12 educational leaders posed a need for providing quality pipelines for preparing emergent educational leaders. Quality educational pipelines should develop effective and stable educational leaders to meet the projected needs for supplying the K-12 educational workforce. The purpose of this nonexperimental quantitative correlational study was to identify the relationships among perceived autonomy, competence, and relatedness as described in self-determination theory (SDT; Deci & Ryan, 1985) and the five effective leadership practices of Modeling the Way, Inspiring a Shared Vision, Challenging the Process, Enabling Others to Act, and Encouraging the Heart (Kouzes & Posner, 2017a) perceived by emergent educational leaders within the United States' southeastern region. The Basic Psychological Need Satisfaction in General Scale (Deci & Ryan, 2000; Gagné, 2003) and the Leadership Practices Inventory®-Self (LPI®-Self; Kouzes & Posner, 2017a) were used to collect participant data from students enrolled in graduate educational leadership degree programs (N = 64) at four universities. The nonexperimental quantitative correlational research design allowed for analyzing the data using a Pearson product-moment correlation procedure. Five significant results were revealed. All three basic psychological needs significantly influenced Enabling Others to Act, and the basic psychological needs of autonomy and competence significantly influenced Challenging the Process. All three basic psychological needs were present in the sample of emergent educational leaders. The emergent educational leaders appeared to require skill development and training in the leadership practices of Modeling the Way, Inspiring a Shared Vision, and Encouraging the Heart to ensure educational leadership effectiveness.
