Balanced processing (alpha = 0.81)[edit]

Description[edit]

Scales were developed and validated for four dimensions of authentic leadership: self-awareness, relational transparency, internalized moral perspective, balanced processing.

Definition[edit]

The authors define authentic leadership as "a pattern of leader behavior that draws upon and promotes both positive psychological capacities and a positive ethical climate, to foster greater self-awareness, an internalized moral perspective, balanced processing of information, and relational transparency on the part of leaders working with followers, fostering positive self-development".

Balanced processing refers to "leaders who show that they objectively analyze all relevant data before coming to a decision".

Items[edit]

  • Solicits views that challenge his or her deeply held positions.
  • Listens carefully to different points of view before coming to conclusions.
