With respect to the sample of principals' judgment of the importance of Green's (2006) 13 Leadership competencies and the frequency with which these principals engage in them, statistically significant differences most often involved the competency "Professionalism." With respect to judgments of importance, "Professionalism" was assessed as being higher than eight of the remaining 12 and was as assessed as being engaged in more often than any of the other 12 with respect to judgments of frequency. Among supervisors, there was no meaningful variation in their judgments of these competencies' importance and the only competency they perceived to be more often engaged in by principals relative to all others was "Professionalism." When principals' and supervisors' judgments were subjected to between-groups comparisons, supervisors were observed to rate the competency "Diversity" as higher in importance than principals and to perceive principals as more often engaging in the competencies "Collaboration" and "Professional Development" than the principals themselves.
