Alvin G. Alma Jose | Melanie M. Santos

 

Abstract:

This study aims to determine the leadership practices and experiences of junior and senior high school student council officers using the Student Leadership Practices Inventory (S-LPI) which is categorized into: (1) Model the way, (2) Inspire a shared vision, (3) Challenge the process, (4) Enable others to act, and (5) Encourage the heart. To find out if junior officers practice leadership skills differently as compared with senior officers, the researchers utilized independent t-test. Interviews were also conducted to describe their experiences as student leaders. The results of the study revealed that the senior officers were rated higher as compared to the junior officers in terms of the five leadership practices. There was no significant difference, though, between the two groups in their leadership behavior. Interviews among the student leaders were also conducted and their responses yielded the theme meaningful leadership experiences.
