Abstract

The following chapter provides an overview of the more established methods of measuring leadership in sport. The Mediational Model of Leadership and the Multidimensional Model of leadership are outlined with their respective measures, the Coaching Behaviour Assessment System and the Leadership Scale for Sports respectively (Smoll & Smith, 1989; Chelladurai, 1993). The chapter also highlights specific issues regarding measurement of the scales i.e. psychometrics. An explanation of the methods used to assess scales psychometrics is also provided throughout therefore enhancing the usability of the chapter for students and practitioners interested in measuring leadership. The reliability and validity of the instruments are discussed with reference to the scales development and later empirical research assessing the utility of the measures. Furthermore, Recommendations and summaries of current directions along with alternative measures are proposed.
