dc.description.abstract The current study was conducted to determine if a valid short-scale leader developmental readiness instrument could be created from the one proposed and used in the previous research. Leader developmental readiness is determined by an individual’s motivation and ability to develop. By determining employees who are ready to develop as leaders, employers can properly use company resources to train and develop these future leaders. This study was a two part study. In the first study, six measures believed to be components of leader developmental readiness were shortened by using confirmatory factor analysis. The second study aimed to validate the shortened measure by conducting a secondary confirmatory factor analysis on a different sample. From the research we were able to create a valid and shorter leader developmental readiness instrument. The leader developmental readiness instrument was reduced down to 19-items. The results of this study contribute to the leader developmental readiness research by creating a practical instrument that can be used in research and in the workforce.
