Relational transparency (alpha = 0.87)[edit | edit source]

Description[edit | edit source]

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

Definition[edit | edit source]

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".

Relational transparency refers to "presenting one’s authentic self (as opposed to a fake or distorted self) to others".

Items[edit | edit source]

  • Says exactly what he or she means.
  • Is willing to admit mistakes when they are made.

The authors reported two sample items of this scale only.
