What is needed of a 21st Century principals has various constructs to measure for knowing the effective leadership qualities of a Principal. Authentic leadership is one leadership quality that researchers identify it as a positive form of leadership to enhance employee’s psychological capital.  In this study, an attempt to measure the Authentic Leadership qualities among the Principals were measured though a survey instrument, which had responses gathered form the 63 Principals of CBSE schools in the state of Kerala, India. Four variables for assessing the Authentic Leadership, namely, Self-Awareness, Internalized Moral Perspective, Balanced Processing and Relational Transparency were measured using a Survey Instrument. The result showed that the standard deviation as a dispersion index to indicate the degree to which individuals within each variable differ from the variable mean. Among the studied variables, the individual value of Self- Awareness deviated the most from its mean (SD = 1.092). This standard deviation suggested reasonably high variability in respondents’ perception toward Self-Awareness. In other word, the survey participants were most varying in this variable from each other. At the other side, the lowest deviation from mean belonged to Relational Transparency with the standard deviation of 0.972.
