Leadership between Students in Extracurricular Activities and Not in Extracurricular Activities at Reitaku University

Author(s): Colin Mitchell


This research paper conducts an analysis of data collected from Reitaku University student participants in extracurricular groups and those not in extracurricular groups using the MLQ (Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire) to measure transformational and transactional leadership. The study compares the quantitative data of the extracurricular groups and the samples not in an extracurricular group, and then compares all the groups to each other as an overview of the full range of leadership. The qualitative responses from the group leaders are used to expand on the quantitative data and provide insight into the leadership styles of each group. The study found that those in extracurricular groups scored slightly higher in both types of leadership than those not in extracurricular groups.. The study also found that the leadership style of the NMUN group, the Student Support Staff, and Japanesia was influenced by transformational leadership styles that focus on setting a good example for followers and inspiring them to achieve a shared goal or mission. The study's findings have implications for organizations that promote extracurricular groups and leadership development.
