Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding contribution


Although the measurement of self-leadership (RSLQ) has been developed and validated with samples from the US with promising reliability and construct validity, its generalizability to other non-western context is problematic. We refine its measurement based on the cross-cultural theory about self-concept differences between individualism and collectivism. The reliability and construct validity of this refined self-leadership scale are explored using exploratory (EFA) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). EFA demonstrated good reliability and stable factor structure for the refined scale and CFA demonstrated acceptable model fit for eleven factors of the refined self-leadership scale. Implications of the results are discussed, and directions for future research are offered.
