Stewardship climate scale: Measurement and an assessment of reliability and validity
Date of this Version
Building on the seminal work of Davis, Schoorman, and Donaldson (1997), using a three study approach and a combined multi-level respondent sample of 847 from 237 firms, we develop a statistically valid and reliable 18-item measure to capture the degree to which executives act to engender a stewardship climate in their organizations. Nomological validity of our dual (psychological and situational) mechanism measure is established by demonstrating significant associations with multiple individual- and firm-level measures.
