The purpose of the research were 1) to investigate the desirable qualities of academic leadership affecting the operational effectiveness of community college teachers in the northeastern region of Thailand and 2) to propose the practical guidelines for improving the qualities of academic leadership affecting the operational effectiveness of community college teachers in the northeastern region. The sample subjects of the study were two hundred and eighty six full-time and part-time teachers of community colleges in the northeastern region of Thailand in 1/2018. The target population was ten specialists in educational administration
selected by purposive sampling. The data was collected by 5-point-rating scale with open-ended
questionnaires from the sample subjects and in-depth interview from ten key informants. The data was analyzed by the descriptive statistics: frequency, percentage, mean and standard deviation. Stepwise multiple regression analysis was also employed for the study. The research findings showed that the three major desirable qualities of academic leadership affecting the operational effectiveness of community college teachers in the northeastern region of Thailand consisted of knowledge, responsibilities and skills.
