Statiskt och kulturellt ledarskapsperspektiv: En studie om ledarskap i Sverige

Abstract [sv]

Den här magisteruppsatsen behandlar två perspektiv på ledarskap som jag kallar för statiskt och kulturellt. Det statiska perspektivet handlar om att betrakta ledarskapskompetenser som oföränderliga och därför samma i alla situationer. I kontrast till detta står det kulturella perspektivet som handlar om att betrakta ledarskapskompetenser som processer. 

Syftet i den här uppsatsen är att påvisa att dessa två ledarskapsperspektiv förekommer och att i en empirisk kontext pröva de här perspektiven för att se om och hur de får stöd av deltagarna i studien. Genom den hermeneutiska metoden har jag intervjuat fem deltagare som är svenska ledare med många års erfarenhet av ledarskap. De respresenterar olika branscher och företag. Tillsammans med deltagarna och med stöd av Hofstedes kulturdimensionsteori samt Bolman & Deals ledarskapsteori har resultatet i den här studien visat att både det statiska och det kulturella perspektivet får stöd av deltagarna. Detta visar sig genom deltagarnas upplevelser och beskrivningar av tre centrala teman; ledarskapet generellt, det svenska ledarskapet och respondenternas ledarskap

Abstract [en]

This master´s thesis examines two perspectives of leadership what I would call the static leadership model and the cultural leadership model. The first model is about seeing leadership competence in terms of unchangeable regardless of situation. The second model sees leadership competence like a process; witch means to consider that leadership competence change depending on the situation. 

The aim of this study is firstly to detect that these two leadership models do exist and secondly to examine if the participants in this study supports these leadership models and how they do it. Through the hermeneutic method I have interviewed five participants who are Swedish leaders with many years of leadership experiences. They represent different companies and sectors. Using the leadership experiences of the participants and the cultural dimension theory of Hofstede and the leadership theory of Bolman & Deal I have come to the conclusion that the participants do support both the static leadership perspective and the cultural leadership perspective. Through the participant’s experiences and descriptions of these three themes: leadership in general, the Swedish leadership and the leadership of the participants it becomes clear that they support these leadership models.
