In this study the influence of general self-efficacy perceived by people with physical disability on self-leadership strategies was investigated. Regarding participants, 322 subjects (men and women) were used. They were people with physical disability, and their age range was 11 to 69 years. The subjects filled validated Greek versions of the Revised Self-Leadership Questionnaire (RSLQ), and General Self-Efficacy (GSE). In conclusion, the findings of the present study support that: (a) self-leadership seems to be marginally intensively used by people with physical disability, (b) general self-efficacy beliefs seem to have a moderate development in people with physical disability, and (c) general self-efficacy significantly affects self-leadership strategies – self-goal setting, self-reward, natural reward, beliefs and mental imagery.
