Scoring Interpretation
This self-assessment questionnaire is designed to measure your authentic
leadership by assessing four components of the process: self-awareness, inter-
nalized moral perspective, balanced processing, and relational transparency. By
comparing your scores on each of these components, you can determine
which are your stronger and which are your weaker components in each cat-
egory. You can interpret your authentic leadership scores using the following
guideline: high = 16–20 and low = 15 and below. Scores in the upper range
indicate stronger authentic leadership, whereas scores in the lower range indi-
cate weaker authentic leadership.
