Abstract [sv]

Vi har i vår forskningsöversikt inte hittat någon beskrivning på hur ledarskap kan anpassas tillmedarbetares olika personlighetstyper. Vårt syfte med studien var således att ta reda på hurolika typer av ledarskap kan anpassas till anställdas olika personlighetstyper för att uppnåstörsta möjlighet till utveckling av deras motivation. Vilket är en bidragande faktor till ettföretags utveckling och bör därför ligga i ledarens intresse. Med hjälp av två olikapersonlighetsklassificeringsmodeller, teorier om ledarskap och motivation samt empiri hämtatfrån ledare i arbetslivet har vi studerat vad för typ av ledarskap som fungerar för modellernasolika personlighetstyper. Med hjälp av kvalitativ forskningsstrategi har vi använt oss avtvärsnittsdesign samt en öppen och sex semistrukturerade intervjuer för att uppnå studienssyfte.Genom vår studie kan vi på ett tydligt sätt visa på att de personligheter vi utgått ifrån kräverolika typ av ledarskap, motiveras av olika faktorer och att situationen kan ha stor inverkan pånär ett visst ledarskap passar. Resultatet av vår studie har utformats till två tabeller utifrån depersonlighetsklassificeringsmodeller vi använt oss av. Tabellerna presenterar vilkenledarskapsteori som passar till vilken personlighetstyp. Studien resulterade även i ettkonstaterande att ledare bör använda sig av relationsinriktat ledarskap i grunden ochkomplettera det med uppgiftsinriktat ledarskap, för att finna de anställdas motivation och ledadem på ett framgångsrikt sätt.

Abstract [en]

In the research of this study we found a gap regarding information on how to adapt leadershipto employees of various personalities. Our purpose was now to fill that research gap. In ourstudy on personality-adapted leadership, we found that all kinds of personalities have variouspreferences to be led. Using two different personality classification models, theories ofleadership and motivation as well as empirical evidence drawn from Business leaders, wehave studied which kind of leadership that works best for models of different personalitytypes. With the help of a cross-section design, qualitative methods together with semistructuredinterviews we were able to combine the theories we used with the empiricalevidence. Accordingly, our purpose is to acknowledge how leadership can be adapted todifferent personalities to achieve the greatest opportunity for the development of theirmotivation. This is a contributing factor to the development of a company and shouldtherefore be in the leader’s interest.As a conclusion our study shows how different personalities demand certain kinds ofleadership, that they get motivated by a wide range of factors and that various situations canhave a big effect where a certain leadership is most suitable. The result of our study has led totwo tables based on the personality classification models, which show which leadershiptheory fits the different kinds of personality types. The study also shows that leaders shouldadapt a relationship-oriented leadership and complement it with a task-oriented one in order tofind their employees motivation and be able to lead them in a successful way.
