Title: Comparison of the Leadership Ability Between Young Rural and Urban Adults in North Dakota
Author: Lester, Shane W.; Luft, V.D.
Description: At the time of this writing, the state of North Dakota was an agricultural state, whose success was heavily dependent upon the success of rural economies. Developing new leaders capable of providing a positive direction for the growth and maintenance of these communities was deemed important. This paper compares how well equipped rural students were as compared to their rural counterparts in taking over the reins of leadership in various aspects. Mail surveys were sent to rural towns of fewer than 2500 people and cities of more than 2500 people. Urban young adults scored higher in positive attitudes about their perceived leadership abilities in speaking and group leaders than rural ones. Rural ones perceived themselves highly competent in personal skills, maintaining relationships and being open to trying new ideas. Young, urban ones were considered to be more valuable contributors to the human race than the rural ones.Leadership skills need to be customed for each group/
