The questionnaire “Executor’s psychological readiness for transition to managerial job” 1198


Filinkova E.B.
PhD in Psychology, Professor in Department of Social Psychology, Moscow Regional State University, Moscow, Russia

The article describes the procedure of development and validation of a new questionnaire which measures the level of psychological executor’s readiness for transition to management. In understanding the structure of readiness, we proceed from the idea that the psychological readiness is a consequence of the unfolding process of managerial self-determination, which means that personalistic sense of management and worker’s own estimates as a leader and a Manager are measurable components of psychological executor’s readiness to transition to management. The peculiarity of the questionnaire is a direct measurement of readiness, readiness is not understood as a personal trait, but as an attitude or a mood. The questionnaire showed the presence of construct validity and high reliability, both for internal consistency and retest. This fact allows to use it as a psychodiagnostic tool, which is applicable in the practical work of the organizational psychologist.

Keywords: executor, management, manager, self-determination, psychological readiness
