CAMPOS, Maria Isabel de  and  RUEDA, Fabián Javier Marín. Authentic Leader Rating Scale: reliability and differences between groups. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2021, vol.21, n.3, pp. 1638-1646. ISSN 1984-6657.

Authentic Leadership Measures has focused on hetero-reported model scales, making it difficult to assess leaders in some organizational processes. The Authentic Leader Assessment Scale (EALA in Portuguese) was developed and validated in a situational judgment test format, aiming to solve this problem; but it is still lacking investigation of reliability. This study had two objectives: to investigate the reliability of EALA, and to verify the differences between groups characterized by socio-demographic variables. The study included 41 Brazilian professionals, among them 23 held leadership roles. The results indicated good reliability indexes for EALA, through test-retest. For the self-awareness factor, a statistically significant difference was found between the groups characterized by occupying or not occupying leadership roles. The study presents analyses on the instrument quality and on the Authentic Leadership theory. It is suggested to continue investigations with EALA throughout longitudinal studies.

Keywords : leadership; authenticity; organizational behavior.
