Abstract [sv]

Ett utvecklande ledarskap anses påverka organisationens motivation och prestation i positiv riktning. Försvarsmakten har sedan 2003 använt Gerry Larssons teori om det utvecklande ledarskapet som grund för ledarskap inom organisationen. Teorin anses vara gångbar såväl i militära sammanhang som i civila organisationer. Syftet med denna uppsats är att utifrån Försvarsmaktens ledarskapsmodell om Det utvecklandeledarskapet undersöka till vilken grad modellen tillämpas vid flygvapnets divisioner. Delar av frågeformuläret Utvecklande Ledarskap Ledarbedömning användes för att kartlägga den genomsnittlige ledarstilen. De 56 personerna som besvarade frågeformuläret gjorde det utifrån deras uppfattning av ledargestalter inom deras division. Resultatet visar att den genomsnittlige ledaren agerar genom handling och genom att vara föredöme. Ledaren tar viktiga beslut, står för dessa och är beredd att försvara dem. Han/hon uppfattas som relativt bra på att ge stöd till medarbetare i situationer där stöd behövs. Däremot uppfattas ledarensom sämre på att konfrontera medarbetare när deras beteende eller resultat inte överrensstämmer medverksamhetens mål. Behovet av konfrontation kan framkallas av divisionens gruppsociala problem eller av enskildas felaktiga handlingar eller dåliga prestation.

Abstract [en]

A developmental leadership is considered to affect the motivation and performance in a positivedirection. Since 2003, the Armed Forces have been using Gerry Larsson’s theory of the developing leadership as a basis for leadership within the organization. The theory is considered to be viable both in military contexts as in civil organizations. The purpose of this paper is to investigate to what extent the model is applied by the Air Force squadrons, using the Developmental Leadership theory. Parts of the Developing Leadership Questionnaire were used to identify the average leadership style. The 56 persons responding to the questionnaire did so based on how they perceive the leaders within their squadron. The results show that the average leader is acting through action and by being an exemplary model. The leader makes important decisions, stands accountable for them and is prepared to defend them. He/she is perceived as being fairly good at providing support to colleagues in situations where supportis needed. However, the leader is perceived as being less able to confront colleagues when their behavior or performance does not comply with the operational goals. The need for confrontation can be provoked by the division’s group-social issues or by the individual’s incorrect actions or bad performance.
