The leadership competency modeling of military academy cadets
Abstract:The purpose of this paper is to introduce a four-year study about the development and validation of a leadership competency model for military academy cadets in the People's Liberation Army. Based on a literature review and experts' judgment, 11 components were selected to compose the leadership competency model. The model was validated by the academic and leadership performance of cadets after graduation. Results indicated that there was a significant positive correlation between competency evaluation and summated leadership performance assessment. The leadership performance assessment was significantly different between cadets who had higher and average competency evaluations. The results indicated that the competency model had good concurrent and predictive validity for the leadership performance of Chinese military academy cadets.
