Developing an understanding of public management leadership style innovation : traits of public administration graduate students of Valdosta State University by Alexandra Chauran( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leadership styles refer to a leader's manner of motivating people, providing them with direction, and implementing plans. It was proposed that graduate students of Valdosta State University may show frequent innovative traits within their leadership styles of choice, in order to project the leadership style of future public administrators. The leadership characteristics were operationalized through survey questions, and the responses of 54 current and former graduate students of Valdosta State University working in public management were analyzed. A majority of graduate students reflected ambitious traits consistent with innovative leadership styles. Fewer graduate students felt satisfied with their jobs and fewer graduate students reflected myopic management traits; satisfaction and myopia were traits of traditional leadership styles. Leadership style innovation is a viable topic with potentially broad application. This dissertation could inspire further study about what other factors compel a leader to develop a new, innovative leadership style."
An analysis of occupational licensing policies in Texas by Judd H Quarles( )

As the regulatory efforts of government continue to increase at all levels, more attention is being given to the public policy topic of occupational licensing. Decisions on whether or not to require occupational licensing should be made on a case-by-case basis, after considering the health and safety risks presented to the public, as well as the costs and benefits of such policies. This dissertation examined occupational licensing policies in Texas by using three methods: case studies of six occupational licensing proposals offered in recent sessions of the Texas legislature, an empirical study of occupational licensing in Texas, and an empirical study comparing occupational licensing policies for behavior analysts across the 50 states. The findings of the case studies revealed that legislators in Texas often make decisions on whether or not licensing should be required in an occupation with very little information about the health and safety risks to the public, instances of harm that have actually taken place, or the costs and benefits found where licensing is already required. In the empirical studies, it was found that the best predictor of whether or not licensing would be required for an occupation in Texas was the amount of other states requiring licensing for the same occupation. Despite the fact that health and safety concerns are one of the most commonly stated reasons for individuals and groups to support occupational licensing requirements, occupations with higher accident rates were not found to be a significant factor in whether or not an occupation is licensed in Texas. When comparing Texas to other states, the most significant variable in determining which of the 50 states will require occupational licensing for behavior analysts is the per capita membership numbers in groups who oppose occupational licensing requirements for behavior analysts
