Abstract [sv]

Ideellt engagemang har ett starkt fäste i Sverige och har en stor inverkan på samhällets stabilitet. Att engagera ideellt är inte alltid enkelt då det inte betalas ut någon lön och det behövs då andra motivationsfaktorer.

Syftet med denna studie är att få en förståelse om vad som motiverar till ideellt engagemang och vad som karakteriserar och motiverar en ideell ledare på glesbygden.

Insamling av data gjordes genom sex djupintervjuer och respondenterna gav en självskattad bild av hur deras engagemang är, vad som motiverar dem och om ledarskapet inom ideella sammanhang.

Slutsatsen i studien var att det finns flera motivationsfaktorer men några som är primära. Meningsfullhet, gemenskap och ansvarskänsla är de viktigaste motivationsfaktorerna för ett ideellt engagemang men även uppmuntran gav en motiverande effekt. Det som studien även kom fram till var att en ledare ska vara vägvisare för sina medlemmar med kunskap, rättvis, inkluderande och lyhörd men även att ledaren är på samma hierarkiska nivå som alla organisationens medlemmar. Motivation för en ledare var att vara omgiven med individer som hade samma ambitions- och motivationsnivå som skapar mer engagemang.

Abstract [en]

Non-profit engagement has a strong foothold in Sweden and has a major impact on society's stability. Engaging non-profit is not always easy because no pay is paid, and other motivational factors are needed.

The purpose of this study is to gain an understanding of what motivates non-profit engagement and what characterizes and motivates a non-profit leader in the rural area.

Data collection was done through six deep interviews and respondents gave a self-appreciated picture of how their engagement is, what motivates them and about leadership in non-profit contexts.

The conclusion in the study was that there are several motivational factors but some that are primary. Meaningful, solidarity and sense of responsibility are the main motivational factors for an non-profit engagement, but encouragement also gave a motivating effect. What the study also revealed was that a leader should guide the members by knowledge, fairness, inclusive and responsive, but also that the leader is at the same hierarchical level as all members of the organization. Motivation for a leader was to be surrounded with individuals who had the same ambition and motivation level that create more engagement.
