Abstract [en]

To understand the modern leadership you have to gain a lot of experience to attain the right competence through which you are able to know what kind of leadership is most suitable to use in the current situation. Leaders agree that every kind of leadership is more or less successful depending on the situation and different organizational factors, for example the co-workers and the environment. Every leader should have a strong willpower and driving force to bring motivation to the organization and to make it more efficient. Another quality that represents a modern leader is the ability to lead and divide the co-workers and the organizations different strengths. The organizational communication is an important factor of how you, as a leader, answer to your co-workers and also how you will be received. Self-confidence, competence and experience are the key words that will lead you to achieve self-insight. Those leaders are the ones who represent the successful, modern leadership.

There is a general difference in working with men and women. The jargon of the working place is depending on which gender among the co-workers that is in majority. The generalization of men as tough, straight and that they are driven by their achievements versus the generalization of women as emotional, gentle and driven by relations are in various ways true, depending on how high in the hierarchy of the working place you are placed. Now days the leadership is not about gender. Instead it is about the ability to express qualities like willing and daring. Taking chances and succeeding leads to legitimating.

To make your co-workers feel motivated, the organization needs to have a solid culture. It is the leader’s task to make the foundation of the organizational-culture, and thereby also the existing standards. The work environment, the jargon, the ideal of clothes etcetera is all controlled by the standards ability to influence the organization. In order to be a good leader you should behave as a role model for your co-workers. If you, as a leader, express an engagement for your work, stability, joy, have an enterprising attitude and also succeed in supplying that to people in your surrounding, you will gain a motivated winning team.

There are different ways to communicate and to share information. The modern leadership is doing this in a pedagogical and a balanced way. To get people to work in your direction and to sell in new ideas to co-workers you need to use strategies. In order to affect others leaders are using all of their collected resources and competence. Some of them are doing this very honestly and deliberately, at the same time as some leaders are completely unknowing about their behavior. In the female intuition there are some qualities that makes us use a pedagogical and balanced way of apply strategies and through that kind of manipulation reach the successful, modern leadership.
