Abstract [sv]

Studiens övergripande syfte var att undersöka om det fanns någon skillnad mellan transformativt och transaktionellt ledarskap och hur dessa korrelerar med stress och socialt stöd. Den avser även att undersöka hur stress och socialt stöd korrelerar med varandra och om det finns könsskillnader. Det utfördes en kvantitativ undersökning med en webbenkät som innehöll tre delar, stress, socialt stöd och ledarskap. Analysen utfördes i SPSS där det gjordes en korrelationsanalys och t-tester. Resultatet från studien visade att transformativt och transaktionellt ledarskap korrelerar med varandra och att dessa korrelerar med stress och socialt stöd. Analyserna visade även att stress korrelerade med socialt stöd och att det inte finns några könsskillnader. Slutsatsen från studien är att det är magnituden snarare än typen av ledarskapsstil som är av vikt för den upplevda stressen och sociala stödet hos medarbetare.
