The study was aimed to develop a scale to measure managerial leadership among PDOs of Northern Karnataka. In the preliminary stage of scale construction, three components namely Technical, Human relations and Diagnostic areas were identified. The behavioural characteristics required for a managerial leader were listed based on review of literature and discussion with specialists in the concerned field. These traits were sent to experts for relevancy screening. Based on the scores finally 30 qualities were retained i.e. 11 under technical, 12 under human relations and 7 under diagnostic areas. The selected qualities are later framed in a statement format and used as a scale. The content and construct validity were done. Reliability of the scale was tested by employing split half method.

Key words: Managerial leadership, Panchayat Development Officer, Technical, Human Relations, Diagnostic.
