dc.description.abstract The purpose of the study was fourfold. The first purpose was to determine the degree to which Indiana high school athletic directors consider work to be a central life interest. The second purpose of the study was to determine if there is a significant difference between the proportions of athletic directors of small and large high schools determined to be work oriented as measured by the Central Life Interest Inventory. The third purpose of the study was to determine if there is a significant difference in the leadership effectiveness of athletic directors who are highly interested in their work as compared to athletic directors who are least interested in their work as a central life interest. The fourth purpose of the study was to determine if there is a significant difference between the leadership effectiveness of athletic directors who are intensely interested in being athletic director in either small or large high schools.The Central Life Interest Inventory and the Leader Behavior Description Questionnaire – Form XII were utilized to gather data. Three null hypotheses were tested using the Multivariate Analysis of Variance. The .05 level of significance was established as the critical probability level for the non-acceptance of hypotheses.Conclusions1.Thirty-one, or 24%, of the one-hundred and thirty-one athletic directors participating in the study consider their work as a central life interest.2.A statistical analysis showed that there is no statistically significant difference in the central life interest between the proportions of work oriented athletic directors from the small and large high schools.3.A statistical analysis showed that there is no statistically significant difference between the average ratings of Group I (highly interested in work) and Group II (least interested in work) when rated by subordinate head coaches relative to the twelve factors of leadership.4.A statistical analysis showed that there is a statistically significant difference between the average ratings of small and large high school athletic directors by subordinate head coaches relative to the twelve factors of leadership. However, the difference was not interpretable using the Univariate Analysis of Variance statistics. en_US
