Whereas researchers have examined dispositions in teacher education programs, literature to assist the field of principal preparation is limited. However, the Educational Leadership Constituency Council standards clearly delineate dispositions that are essential for the success of school leaders. The faculty at a southeastern public university currently requires an individual disposition conference before a principal candidate begins the internship. This conference, serving as one of the transition points in the Educational Leadership program, addresses areas of leadership the faculty believe crucial to strengthening professional growth. Data gathered during 76 conferences indicate that the most frequently addressed dispositional domain concerned professional demeanor and work ethic. Moral and ethical dispositions were presented least. Specific dispositions within each domain are discussed in the study. AVAILABLE AT: http://cnx.org/content/m31400/latest/
