Successful leadership : a leader's personal experiences and knowledges (English)
Abstract [sv]

Världen präglas i dag av ett antal stora ledare, vilka är mer eller mindre framgångsrika. Alla ledare är olika och har olika ledarskap. Organisationer påverkas av världens största ledare, såsom Donald Trump som är USA:s president. Ett framgångsrikt ledarskap skulle kunna främja ett klimat för att möjliggöra bättre prestationer och utveckling för medarbetare. Syftet med studien är att undersöka ledares personliga upplevelser och erfarenheter kring sitt ledarskap. Sex stycken kvalitativa intervjuer har använts för att uppnå studiens syfte, där målgruppen var uppskattade ledare i två större organisationer. Ledarna som intervjuades var män och kvinnor mellan åldrarna 45 och 50. Intervjuerna spelades in och transkriberades därefter. Det transkriberade materialet kodades och analyserades med hjälp av tematisk analys. Sex stycken teman framkom, där det samtliga informanter benämnde mest var "mänskligt intresse". Informanterna i studien anser att en framgångsrik ledare genuint skall bry sig om sina medarbetare. De skall lyssna och ha viljan att utveckla medarbetarna för att få dem att arbeta mot organisationens mål.

Abstract [en]

The world today is characterized by several major leaders, which are successful to various degrees. All are different and have different leadership skills. Organizations are influenced by some of the world's largest leaders, such as Donald Trump, the US president. Successful leadership could promote a climate to enable better performance and development for employees. The purpose of the study was to investigate leaders' personal experiences and knowledges about their own leadership. Six qualitative interviews were used to achieve the purpose of the study, and the target group was esteemed leaders in two major organizations. The leaders were both men and women between the ages of 45 and 50. The interviews were recorded and transcribed. The transcribed material was encoded and analyzed by means of thematic analysis. Six themes emerged, in which all the informants mostly mentioned "human interest". The informants in the study believe that a successful leader should genuinely care about his employees. They should listen and have the will to develop the employees to make them work towards the organization's goals.
