A manager creates opportunities for team to work : A qualitative study of leadership in a municipal housing department in the middle of Sweden (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet i föreliggande studie var att undersöka chefers och medarbetares uppfattning om ledarskap genom att låta dem resonera kring komponenter från transformativt ledarskap, transaktionellt ledarskap respektive Self-Determination Theory (SDT). Två fokusgruppsintervjuer genomfördes på ett kommunalt bostadsbolag i Mellansverige, varav en fokusgrupp innehöll medarbetare och den andra fokusgruppen innehöll Organisationens ledningsgrupp. Huvudresultatet visade att Organisationens ledarskap innehåller stora delar från transformativt ledarskap och SDT. Resultatet visade även att transaktionellt ledarskap förekommer i ytterst liten utsträckning. En transformativ ledare stöttar medarbetarna till att ta egna beslut och ta egna initiativ, vilket kan leda till en ökad motivation bland medarbetarna. Transformativa ledare arbetar även aktivt för att uppfylla de grundläggande behoven utifrån SDT, självständighet, kompetens och samhörighet, bland medarbetarna. 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the present study was to examine managers and employees perception of leadership by asking them to discuss key components of transformational leadership, transactional leadership and Self-Determination Theory (SDT). Two focus group interviews were conducted at a municipal housing department in the middle of Sweden. One focus group contained employees and the other focus group contained the management team. The main results showed that the Organization's leadership includes major components of transformational leadership and SDT. The results also showed that transactional leadership rarely occurs. Transformative leader supports its employees to make their own decisions and take their own initiatives, something that can lead to increased motivation among employees. Transformative leaders were also found to actively work to meet the basic needs of SDT, autonomy, competence and relatedness, among their employees.
