Abstract [sv]

Denna studie grundade sig i att undersöka vad som påverkar individens värdering av ledarskapsutbildningar. Det ville granskas om huruvida individens värdering har en koppling till dennes specifika personlighetsdrag. Denna forskningsansats framtogs med anledning till en avsaknad av tillräcklig forskning i ämnet gällande individens värdering av ledarskapsutbildningar och kopplingen till personlighetsdrag.

Studien baserades på en kvantitativ undersökning där 75 stycken respondenters svar analyserades genom statistisk dataanalys för att besvara frågeställningarna. Krav fanns på att respondenterna måste ha genomfört en form av ledarskapsutbildning.

Syftet med denna studie var att bland annat undersöka om det fanns ett samband mellan hur individen värderar ledarskapsutbildning och hens personlighetsdrag enligt Big Five modellen. Studien kunde med hjälp av en tvådelad webbaserad enkät få bidrag kring individens personlighetsdrag och värdering av ledarskapsutbildning. Enkätens frågor kring ledarskapsutbildning var egenkonstruerade och personlighetsfrågorna togs från personlighetstestet IPIP-NEO. Könsfördelningen i studien var nästintill jämnfördelad där 52% av respondenterna var män, 46.70% var kvinnor och resterande 1.30% valde att inte ange sitt kön.

Resultaten från studien visade att personlighetsdragen Extraversion, Agreeableness och Openness to Experience hade signifikanta samband till hur individen värderar ledarskapsutbildning och innebär att höga värden av dessa personlighetsdrag resulterar i att individen värderar utbildningen högre. Vidare genererade undersökningen resultat vilket visade på att Agreeableness hade ett prediktivt värde till individens värdering av ledarskapsutbildningar.

Abstract [en]

This study was conducted on the basis of investigating what affects the individual's evaluation of leadership trainings. The study wanted to examine if the individual's evaluation had a connection to the specific personality traits of the individual. The need of this research was derived from the lack of sufficient research not only stating what affects evaluation of leadership training, but also, if this is connected to personality traits.

By using a quantitative method, in terms of utilizing an online questionnaire, the study's purpose was tested. The 75 participants were asked to answer the questionnaire which was divided into two parts consisting of leadership training and personality questions. There was a requirement that the participants must have completed some type of leadership training in order to participate. The participants' answers on the questionnaire was analysed by using a statistic data analysis program. The leadership training questions were constructed and the other IPIP-NEO part of the questionnaire was taken from its original source.

The purpose of this study was, amongst other aims, to investigate if there was a link between how a person evaluates leadership trainings and their specific personality traits in accordance to the Big Five model. The gender distribution was fairly equal with 52% being male, 47% being female and the remaining 1% of the participants chose not indicate their gender.

The results of the study showed that the personality traits Extraversion, Agreeableness and Openness to Experience had a significant correlation with how the individual valuates leadership training. This indicates that individuals with high levels of these personality traits tend to evaluate their leadership training higher than others. The personality trait Agreeableness showed predictive validity in regards to how the individual evaluates leadership training.
