SANTOS, Joana Vieira dos et al. Adaptation of Spreitzer's psychological Empowerment Scale in a Portuguese sample. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.3, pp. 325-332. ISSN 1677-0471.

Psychological empowerment is a motivational construct, by ensuring conditions that increase motivation to perform tasks, with a strong sense of self-efficacy. The present study aimed to examine the factor structure of the psychological empowerment scale in a Portuguese sample of 230 individuals, employees of a public university in Portugal. The results of the confirmatory factor analysis of the 12 items on the scale show a structure of four factors, with high internal consistency, which suggests appropriateness for application to a Portuguese population. We reiterate the urgent need to further examine this issue, namely, its relationship with other organizational processes.

Palavras-chave : psychological empowerment; factor analysis; adaptation; scale; organizational processes.
