"The measure is grounded in transformational/transactional leadership theory and identifies with the theory’s distinct focus on management versus leadership. The MLQ30 is an effective tool for training and development … The psychometric qualities of the instrument are sound, as the MLQ30 was developed according to standard procedures and is based on a large representative standardization sample. Reliability and validity data also lend support to the quality of the MLQ30." Buros Center for Testing
