The study was designed to explore the relationship between the leadership approach of teacher trainees and their level of consciousness quotient. A descriptive survey was conducted on 100 teacher trainees (both male & female in the ratio of 1:1). The level of consciousness of teacher trainees was assessed using Consciousness Quotient Inventory (CQ-i) by Brazdau (2011).
To assess the leadership approach, the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ-6S) by Bass and Avolio (1992) was used.
The relationship between scores on seven leadership factors (comprising three leadership approaches) and the level of consciousness was studied using Pearson’s correlation. Results indicate a significant positive correlation to a varying degree between conscious experience and three leadership approaches.
