While conducting your research

  • You will use the ALQ only for the specific study that has been requested. Contact Mind Garden if you would like to use the ALQ for a different study.
  • You will not provide the ALQ to any other researchers. They must submit their own Research Permission for the Authentic Leadership Questionnaire form for permission.
