Understanding the Nature of SL Daniel Breen Study (1970) –Questionnaires to 148 colleges, 60 responded, 40 had leadership development programs. –Six commonalities of leadership programs: Students were always involved in planning the programs The student activities department took a major role in the planning and implementation of these programs The best programs cost money Weekend retreat formats were very popular Effective programs usually involved small groups and experience-based learning of an interpersonal and problem- solving nature with the theory and lecture kept to a minimum. Feedback sessions where participants were permitted to react to the program were very beneficial. Breen, D.G. (1970).
