As organizations approach the 21st Century, employee empowerment has become an important concern in coping with current competitive demands. Empowerment demands non-traditional relationships between organizations and their employees. At the heart of empowerment lies employees' ability to lead themselves. However, as important as self-leadership skills are to the success of empowerment programs, no valid measure of self-leadership has been available. Three studies are reported which contribute to the refinement and preliminary validation of a measurement of self-leadership skills. Results, limitations, and a suggested research agenda contributing to practical benefits are discussed.
