This study includes research and reviews to revise the shorter forms of the Positive Leadership Scale (PLS). One of the original contributions of the study; While the newly developed PLS in the Turkish literature has benefited researchers by making it more suitable for use, another -perhaps more important-contribution; The fact is that the revision process of the long form scale to the short form scale - its stages, evaluation dimensions, analyzes - has been revealed on an example in detail. In the context of the evaluations made, a 6-dimensional, 12-item (PLS-12-Short) form is primarily recommended, as presented in the annex of the study. However, it can be expressed in the light of various studies that researchers who will not use dimensional structure can also use 6-item one dimensional structure.
