The study reported here sought to identify those sub-competencies that are key indicators of future success for individuals who serve as the Administrative Leader for County Extension in North Carolina. A significant number of County Extension Directors surveyed indicated that eight sub-competencies are considered critically important in achieving success in the role of an administrative leader. While eight of the sub-competencies evaluated were deemed critical early in the tenure of a new leader, findings also suggest that Administrative County Leaders need to master all 38 sub-competencies to insure long-term success.
