2.10.4 Gifted students’ and teachers’ perceptions of leaders and leadership

The purpose of this study was to examine gifted students’ and teachers’ perceptions of leaders and leadership. The conception of leadership, characteristics of leaders, and gifted students’ leadership were identified based on a comprehensive review of literature and two focus group interviews. Focus group data were analyzed using qualitative methods. Gifted students and teachers in South Korea agreed upon the qualities of great leaders and leadership programs. However, they held different opinions on gifted students’ leadership. Discussion on the reasons for this gap and further analysis will be included in the presentation.
