Authentic leadership

Development of a new three pillar model

Fiona Beddoes-Jones, Stephen Swailes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Purpose: This paper aims to summarise a new model of authentic leadership derived from research with senior leaders in the UK.

Design: The model was developed and tested using three independent samples;140 business leaders, 54 senior military officers with 390 independent raters and 303 business leaders.

Findings: a 15-item, self-report, three-component measure of authentic leadership was obtained from testing across samples. The three components measure an individual's capacity fo self-awareness, self-regulation and ethical behaviour.

Originality: The paper contributes to the authentic leadership literature through the creation of a short authentic leadership scale that could be used in leadership research and which simplifies and unifies previous conceptualisations of authentic leadership. The three-pillar model offers guidance to HR practitioners looking to design leadership development interventions.
