Information Sheet – Business Direct Reports

Dear Sir/Madam,

As a part of my Doctor of Philosophy (Management) I am conducting research which aims to develop a new quantitative instrument for measuring authentic leadership. This research is being supervised by Dr Sarah Dawkins, Adjunct Professor Angela Martin, and Dr Gemma Lewis.

You are being invited to participate in an online survey for preliminary validation of the Authentic Leader behaviours Index (ALBI) which currently comprises 16 items.

The process, if you choose to participate, involves:
1. Completing the following survey.
2. Considering participating in the next stage of the research (optional) involving tutor-student pairing.

If you would like, you can request to be sent a summary of findings after the completion of this research, before December 2018. Aggregate results of this questionnaire will be reported in my PhD thesis, and may be published in a number of academic journal articles. For further information about this study, please contact either myself as the student, or any of my supervisors listed below.

This study has been approved by the Tasmanian Social Sciences Human Research Ethics Committee. If you have concerns or complaints about the conduct of this study, please contact the Executive Officer of the HREC (Tasmania) Network on +61 3 6226 6254 or email human.ethics@utas.edu.au.
