[026] ‘MTSU On the Record’ leads the way with undergraduate research topic

MURFREESBORO — The nature of effective leadership will be the topic of the next “MTSU On the Record” radio program.

Host Gina Logue’s interview with Leigh Stanfield will air from 5:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 3, and from 8 to 8:30 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 9, on WMOT-FM (89.5 and www.wmot.org).

Stanfield, a communication studies major from Soddy-Daisy, Tennessee, presented her research in May at the 2015 NCA Undergraduate Honors Conference at George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

Her paper, titled “Prototypicality and Punishment in Leadership,” found that “do as I say” leadership is more effective than “do as I do” leadership. She studied the MTSU Band of Blue as her research subject.

“Punishment-style leadership is kind of a misnomer,” said Stanfield. “It actually refers to punishments and rewards, and, so, it’s basically just a leader that has punishment or reward power in the group.”
