MOURAO, Luciana; FAIAD, Cristiane  e  COELHO JUNIOR, Francisco Antonio. Psychometric Analysis of the Leadership Styles Hetero-assessment Scale. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2016, vol.21, n.3, pp.293-304. ISSN 1678-4669.  https://doi.org/10.5935/1678-4669.20160028.

Leadership is a complex issue and widely researched in organizational behavior. This article aims to describe the process of creation and initial tests of validity of a leadership styles scale. We conducted three studies, involving 2,510 workers. The first study, a cross-analysis, shows evidence of psychometric validity. The second study comprises the confirmatory factor analysis of the scale. Finally, the third one presents the criterion validity based on the analysis of Pearson correlation with job satisfaction. Initial results indicated a scale of 15 items and two-dimensional structure with the factors Focus on People and Focus on Results. A first analysis of structural equation revealed a marginal adjustment of the hypothesized model, with suggested deletion of four items, and confirmed the factor structure tested with good fit. The scale showed a positive and significant correlation with job satisfaction.

Palavras-chave : confirmatory factor analysis; leadership styles; measures.
