Distinguished Paper Award at the annual conference of the Association of Leadership Educators. Applying Leadership Self-Efficacy Theory: Understanding the Innerworkings of Assessments by Creating Our Own. Paper presented for the annual conference of the Association of Leadership Educators held virtually.
Abstract: This innovative practice paper explores a theoretical framework supporting leadership self-assessments — leadership self-efficacy theory. The paper describes the theory’s application in an exemplar self-assessment instrument and explains our approach to understanding the inner workings of assessments by creating and testing our own.
