PEREIRA, Michelle Morelo  and  FERREIRA, Maria Cristina. Psychometric Properties of the Servant Leadership Scale. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.18, n.3, pp. 239-247. ISSN 1677-0471.

The server leader is seen as someone motivated by a feeling of serving their team that goes beyond their own interests. The aim of the study was to adapt and gather initial evidence of internal structure validity and relationships with other variables for the Servant Leadership Scale. The sample consisted of 432 Brazilian workers of both sexes (54.6% male). In the verification of the internal structure, three models were tested through confirmatory factor analysis, with the model of eight correlated factors being the one that presented the best fit indices. The majority of the dimensions of servant leadership had moderate to strong correlations with authentic leadership, job engagement, affective organizational commitment, and job satisfaction. The initial evidence of validity obtained strengthens the possibility of the future use of the scale in Brazilian investigations.

Keywords : leadership style; statistical validity; psychometrics.
