Abstract [sv]

Den psykosociala arbetsmiljön innebär det sociala klimatet på arbetsplatser och det påverkas av alla medarbetare som interagerar med varandra. Att personalen trivs på sin arbetsplats tillhör ledarens ansvar och hur han eller hon väljer att bemöta sina anställda påverkar även resultatet kring arbetsmiljön. Genom semistrukturerade intervjuer med åtta lärare har deras syn på hur ledarens egenskaper och färdigheter påverkar den psykosociala arbetsmiljön, samt hur ledaren bör agera när konflikter uppkommer. Egenskaper definieras i denna studie som medfödda förmågor och färdigheter ses som något som går att lära. Resultatet visar att delaktighet, tydliga direktiv och lyhördhet främjar god psykosocial arbetsmiljö medan härskartekniker och svårigheter att ta emot kritik motverkar den. I konfliktsituationer är det viktigt att rektorn kan agera neutral samtalspartner och samtidigt vara en stöttepelare för lärarna.

Abstract [en]

The psychosocial work environment refers to the social climate in workplaces which affects all employees who interact with each other. The employees' health and satisfaction in their workplace, is the leader's responsibility and how he or she chooses to respond to their employees' needs also affects the results around the work environment. The study was comprised of eight semi structured interviews where teachers were interviewed regarding their experiences on how the leader's traits and skills affect their psychosocial work environment, and how their leaders should act when conflict arises. Traits are defined in this study as something you are born with and skills are defined as something that you learn. The results indicate that participation, clear directives and responsiveness promote good psychosocial work environment according to the teachers, while master suppression techniques and difficulties in receiving criticism counteract it. In conflict situations it is important that the principal can act as a neutral collocutor but still remain as a mainstay to the teachers.
