Employees' perspective on everyday leadership : Leadership in practice: A qualitative study highlighting the everyday perceived leadership challenges from a gender perspective found in everyday work in the public sector (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund och problem: Studien har avsikt att undersöka hur det vardagliga ledarskapet uppfattas av medarbetare inom Borås Stad. Detta eftersom att ledarskap idag kan definieras och uppfattas olika beroende på bakomliggande faktorer, exempelvis hur det skiljer sig mellan det uppfattade manliga respektive kvinnliga ledarskapet.

Syfte och metod: Det primära syftet med denna studie är öka förståelsen vad gäller uppfattade ledarskapsutmaningar, om det skiljer sig mellan ett manligt och kvinnligt ledarskap och hur det vardagliga ledarskapet uppfattas bland medarbetarna inom den offentliga sektorn. Metoden som har använts i denna studie är en kvalitativ empirisk ansats, närmare bestämt semistrukturerade intervjuer med tio medarbetare inom Borås stad där hälften av undersökningspersonerna har en manlig- respektive kvinnlig ledare.

Resultat: Resultatet av den empiriska studien tyder på att det föreligger en samstämmighet hos medarbetare inom Borås Stad gällande hur de upplever det vardagliga ledarskapet. Det insamlade materialet har analyserats utifrån ledarskapsteorier, transformativt ledarskap, medarbetarskap och genusperspektiv.

Slutsats: I den utvalda organisationen inom den offentliga sektorn i Borås Stad är medarbetarna överlag mycket nöjda med hur det vardagliga ledarskapet utförs i praktiken. Medarbetarna inom Borås Stad anser att det inte förekommer större skillnader hur medarbetarna uppfattar det vardagliga ledarskapet, beroende på om medarbetarna innehar manliga eller kvinnliga ledare. Medarbetarna är tillfredsställda med hur organisationen arbetar med involvering av medarbetare men att det finns potential till förbättring vid större organisationsförändringar.

Background and problem: The study intends to investigate how everyday leadership is perceived by employees within the Borås Stad. This is because leadership today can be defined and perceived differently depending on underlying factors, for example how it differs between male and female leadership.

Purpose and method: The primary purpose of this study is to increase understanding regarding perceived leadership challenges, whether there is a difference between male and female leadership and how everyday leadership is perceived among employees in the public sector. The method that has been used in this study is a qualitative empirical approach, more precisely semi-structured interviews with ten employees within Borås Stad where half of the respondents have a male or female boss.

Results: The results of the empirical study indicate that there is a consensus among employees within Borås Stad regarding how they experience everyday leadership. The collected material has been analyzed based on leadership theories, transformative leadership, employeeship and gender perspective.

Conclusion: In the selected organization within the public sector in Borås Stad, the employees are generally very satisfied with how the everyday leadership is carried out in practice. The employees within Borås Stad believe that there are no major differences in how the employees perceive everyday leadership, depending on whether the employees have male or female leaders. The employees are satisfied with how the organization works with the involvement of employees, but that there is potential for improvement in case of major organizational changes.
