Sthian Wongkom, Wirot Sanrattana, Prayuth Chusorn


This study is a descriptive research study aiming to: 1) test the fitness between the theoretical model of the mindful leadership indicators and empirical data and 2) investigate factor loading value of the main elements, sub-elements, and indicators with models. The population of the research is 27,718 primary school principals under the office of the Basic Education Commission. Data collection means was rating-scale questionnaire from 610 participants in the sample group selected randomly by a multi-stage sampling technique. The data was analysed using a computer program. The results of the research confirmed the hypotheses of the research which are: the theoretical model is relevant to the empirical data, and the value of Relative Chi-Square (CMIN/DF), Root Mean Square Error of Approximation (RMSEA), Goodness-of-Fit Index (GFI), Adjusted Goodness-of-Fit Index (AGFI), Comparative Fit Index (CFI), and  (6) Normed Fit Index (NFI) is in accordance with the criteria and 2) the value of factor loading of the main elements is between 0.84 – 1.70 which is 0.70 higher than the criteria, the value of factor loading of the sub-elements is between 0.31 – 1.95, and the value of the factor loading of the indicators is between 0.30 – 8.26 which is 0.30 higher than the criteria.
