There are so many leadership behavior description measures in the literature, as much as the number of taxonomies on leadership behavior. Despite of the huge number of leadership behavior description measures in the literature, construct assessment and validation studies are very rare in literature. In this sense, this survey, taking on the construct re-assessment and validation of leadership behavior taxonomy is expected to make valuable contribution to leadership literature. Among the variety of scales measuring leadership behaviors, scales based on Yukl’s Leadership Behavior Taxonomy (LBT) model is the most emphasized. Thus, Yukl’s Leadership Behavior Taxonomy (LBT) is focused on and the constructs of LBT have been evaluated in terms of content validity, convergent validity, discriminant validity and predictive validity in this study.
