The impact of an intensive service leadership course in mainland China: Objective outcome evaluation (pp. 63-71) $50.00
Authors:  Daniel TL Shek, Li Lin, Hildie Leung, and Xiaoqin Zhu
Abstract:
This study examined changes in university students after participating in a 3.5-day intensive service leadership course incorporated in a leadership training program conducted in mainland China. Participants recruited from three universities in Hong Kong and mainland China were invited to complete a questionnaire before (pre-test), immediately after (post-test), and 12 days after (follow-up test) the course, with outcome indicators including positive youth development, life satisfaction, service leadership beliefs and qualities. Results indicated a stable trend of improvement on these indicators over the three times of assessment. Students had significant or marginally significant higher scores at post-test and they scored significantly higher on all indicators at follow-up test. Despite the absence of a control group and relative short interval between follow-up test and post-test, results suggest that the intensive service leadership course was effective in promoting studentsí positive youth development and enhancing their understanding and qualities of service leadership as well as life satisfaction.
