“Leader Efficacy and Motivation to Lead Among Sworn Law Enforcement Females” at the
Association for Psychological Science Annual Convention, Washington DC, May 23-26, 2019
The quantitative, correlational study examined if and to what extent leadership self-efficacy and leadership self-efficacy combined with multiple demographic covariables predicted motivation to lead among sworn law enforcement females. The regression analyses provided empirical evidence that leadership self-efficacy statistically significantly predicted general and factor level (affective-identity, non-calculative, socio-normative) motivation to lead. When considering leadership self-efficacy combined with multiple demographic covariables, few demographic variables contributed to the statistical significance of the predictive models. Moreover, the demographic predictor variables statistically significantly improved only the non-calculative motivation to lead predictive model among the sworn law enforcement females participating in the study.
