Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att belysa enhetschefernas uppfattning av sitt ledarskap i rollen som enhetschef inom socialt arbete. För att besvara syftet har sju halvstrukturerade intervjuer genomförts med enhetschefer verksamma inom hemtjänsten. Empirin har analyserats med en kvalitativ innehållsanalys samt ledarskapsteorier, rollteori och tidigare forskning kring ledarskap inom socialt arbete. Vår studie fann att enhetscheferna använder sig av ett anpassat ledarskap för att hantera en kravfylld verksamhet. De har en position som innebär krav och förväntningar från olika håll, de upplever sig ha många arbetsområden vilka präglar deras ledarskap. Informanterna var dock medvetna om sina förutsättningar inom organisationen och hur dessa spelar in sen när de hanterar sin roll. Utbildningen tycks vara en faktor som enligt enhetscheferna krävs för ett bra ledarskap då den bidrar till en trygghet och förståelse för processen. Resultatet indikerar också att enhetscheferna arbetar utefter vad som passar utifrån deras personlighet.
