Authentic leadership is an emerging theory in recently years. This paper firstly introduces definitions of authentic leadership addressed by domestic and foreign scholars, and discusses related concepts and various dimensions of the structure. Then relevant structure models of authentic leadership are presented, as well as related variables. Limited scales—only two of them can be found in published papers—were developed. We contribute some regard consensus in this concept based on our reviews. In addition, more scales and the relationship between variables and authentic leadership need to be further explored.
