Abstract [sv]

Organisationer där personal delar förståelse av olika organisatoriska aspekter har visat sig få positiva organisatoriska utfall inom olika områden, till exempel inom områden som arbetsmiljö och inlärningsklimat. Forskning har efterfrågat studier av olika personalgruppers preferenser till ledarskap. Syftet med enkätstudien var att undersökahur medarbetare och chefer ser på ledarskap och specifikt om grupperna uppvisar skillnader. De tre aspekter av ledarskap för vilka skillnader i attityder undersöktes var ledarstil (transformativ, transaktionell), chefsutveckling (ledarutveckling, ledarskapsutveckling) och fortbildning (UGL, värdegrundsbaserad, shibboleth). Metoden var en kvantitativ enkätstudie med ett i huvudsak bekvämlighetspräglat urval bestående av 69 personer. Data samlades in genom en online enkät. Designen och analysen fokuserade på att identifiera vilka ledarskapsattribut i de tre olika aspekternasom var önskade samt att se om grupperna medarbetare och chef skiljde sig åt i sina skattningar. Resultatet visade att medarbetare och chefer på det valda företaget överlag var ganska överens. Båda grupperna ansåg att transformativt ledarskap var mer önskvärt än transaktionellt, samt att värdegrundsbaserade ledarskapsutbildningar var mer intressanta än andra fortbildninssalternativ. En skillnad fanns mellan grupperna och det var att cheferna uppskattade ett transformativt ledarskap mer än vad medarbetarna gjorde.

Abstract [en]

Research has shown that congruence in attitudes among an organization’s staff can give benefits to the organization. Research in leadership therefore tries to understand organizational congruence in leadership preferences. The purpose of this study was to investigate how staff members in an organization view different aspects of leadership and specifically if managers and employees portray differences or similarities in their attitudes. Three dimensions of leadership were considered; desired leadershipstyle; supervisor development, and leadership training. The method was quantitative with empirical testing carried out through an online survey. 69 respondents from a large healthcare company in Sweden responded. The results show that overall the respondents prefer transformative leadership over transactional, and that values based leadership courses are preferred over classical group oriented courses and more modern, arts based leadership trainings. The two groups thus view leadership across the three dimensions similarly but one difference was noted: Supervisors preferred transformative leadership more than the employees did.
