Manager's leadership in the public sector : A qualitative study on how managers in the public sector describe and experience their leadership (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie är baserad på en kvalitativ metod om hur chefer inom offentlig sektor beskriver sitt ledarskap. Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur chefer inom offentlig sektor beskriver sitt ledarskap och hur de upplever att ledarskapet fungerar i relation till de anställda, samt hur chefernas synsätt kan förstås utifrån ett genusperspektiv. De teoretiska ramverk som studien utgår från handlar om ledarskap, chefernas relation till de anställda samt teorier om manligt respektive kvinnligt ledarskap. Studien genomfördes genom semistrukturerade intervjuer med åtta chefer inom statliga myndigheter i Västra Götaland. Urvalet av studiens respondenter är uppbyggt på ett målstyrt urval med jämn könsfördelning. Det slutsatser som kunde dras var att chefernas beskrivningar om sitt ledarskap var baserat på tillit, tillgänglighet samt teambaserat och situationsanpassat ledarskap. Cheferna ansåg att det är viktigt att använda sig av både chefskap och ledarskap i sitt dagliga arbete. De upplevde också att ledarskapet fungerar bra i relation till de anställda genom att uppdatera dem med feedback samt låta personalen ha en viss inflytande vid beslut gällande arbetsmiljö. Beskrivningen av kvinnliga respektive manliga chefernas ledarskap hade i de flesta fall likheter som tyder på att alla var måna om sin personal.

Abstract [en]

This is a qualitative study of how managers in the public sector describe their leadership. The purpose of the study is to investigate how managers in the public sector details their leadership and how they feel that leadership works in relation to the employees and how the managers' views can be understood from a gender perspective. The theoretical framework from which the study is based is about leadership, the managers' relationship with the employees and theories of male and female leadership. The study was conducted through semi-structured interviews with eight managers in government agencies in Västra Götaland. The selection of the study's respondents is based on a targeted selection with an even gender distribution. The conclusions that could be drawn were that the managers' description of their leadership was based on trust, availability and team-based and situational leadership. The managers considered it important to make use of both management and leadership in their daily work. They also felt that the leadership works well in relation to the employees by updating them with feedback and allowing the staff to have a certain influence on decisions regarding the working environment. The description of their leadership between the respondents' female and male managers had, in most cases, similarities that indicate that everyone was aware of their staff.
