    Svar på UL handledarfrågor: Nr 1 20232023Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    FHS möts regelbundet av frågor från UL handledare. Syftet med denna PM är att ge svar och kommentarer till dessa frågor. Det handlar främst om frågor som inte direkt går att besvara med hjälp av den befintliga handledarpärmen. Det övergripande syftet är att stärka handledarna i samband med deras utbildningar. Ambitionen är att uppdatera denna PM när ett antal nya frågor dykt upp. Texten förutsätter god förtrogenhet med den teoretiska Ledarskapsmodellen och med gällande handledarpärm. Ordningsföljden mellan frågorna följer ingen systematik. De kommer i den följd jag fick ta del av dem.

    The Developmental Leadership Questionnaire (DLQ): Some psychometric properties2006In: Scandinavian Journal of Psychology, ISSN 0036-5564, E-ISSN 1467-9450, Vol. 47, no 4, p. 253-262Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The development leadership model (Larsson et al., 2003), designed to introduce refinements to the transformational leadership model, has been adopted for use in the Swedish Armed Forces. The Developmental Leadership Questionnaire (DLQ) was constructed to measure important parts of the model. The main aim of the study was to evaluate some psychometric properties of the DLQ. Most analyses are based on two subsets of individuals from a sample mostly consisting of male Swedish, military officers, each of whom has rated a given leader (n= 450 and 449 respectively). A second sample consisted of Swedish military cadets (n= 141). The dimensionality was assessed with a confirmatory factor analysis. Most DLQ scales were reasonably well reproduced and showed high or acceptable internal consistency. When related to perceived results of leadership (self-rated by leaders and rated by subordinates), results from multiple regression analyses supported what could be predicted by the theoretical model. It was concluded that the DLQ has acceptable psychometric properties and that the theoretical refinements introduced to the developmental leadership model were empirically supported.

    “An undisturbed afternoon of writing”: a qualitative study of professors’ job satisfaction2019In: Journal of Applied Research in Higher Education, ISSN 2050-7003, E-ISSN 1758-1184, Vol. 11, no 4, p. 719-732Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to model factors that contribute to job satisfaction amonguniversity professors.

    Design/methodology/approach – The approach was qualitative; 12 in-depth interviews were conductedwith Swedish university full professors representing 11 different academic subjects.

    Findings – Five facets of job satisfaction were identified: distal environment (e.g. impact on society and thescientific community), proximal social environment, self (e.g. receiving external credit and experiencinginternal pride), the uplifts of daily life and formal conditions (e.g. pay and opportunities to continue afterretirement). A model was inductively developed according to which professors’ job satisfaction is influencedby interacting contextual and individual antecedent conditions.

    Research limitations/implications – Because a qualitative approach was used, with a limited number ofinformants, there is a lack of representativeness and the concepts generated are of a sensitizing rather than adefinitive character.

    Practical implications – Attention should be paid to university professors’ need for autonomy, otherwisepublic management control strivings may become counter-productive.

    Originality/value – A new model of professors’ job satisfaction with a richness of details was developed.

    Comparison within gender and between female and male leaders in female-dominated, male-dominated and mixed-gender work environments2020In: Journal of Gender Studies, ISSN 0958-9236, E-ISSN 1465-3869, no 7, p. 739-750Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study was to compare the self-rated leadership behaviors of men and women in female-dominated, male-dominated and mixed-gender work environments and make within-gender comparisons across these three contexts. Data was collected using the Developmental Leadership Questionnaire from a sample of Swedish leadership course participants (N = 1897). Female leaders rated themselves more favorably than male leaders in female- dominated and mixed-gender work environments. Only small gender differences were found in male-dominated settings. Women in female dominated and gender-mixed work environments reported more favorable self-ratings than women in male dominated contexts. Among male leaders, fewer differences were observed between different work environments. The results are discussed in terms of organizational culture, individual selection preferences and a rapidly growing proportion of women leaders in the Swedish labor market.

    Social psychological aspects of inter-organizational collaboration in a total defense context: a literature review2023In: International Journal of Organizational Analysis, ISSN 1934-8835, E-ISSN 1758-8561, Vol. 31, no 3, p. 693-709Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    This paper aims to systematically review the extant research on social psychological aspects of civil-military inter-organizational collaboration, particularly in a total defense context.

    Design/methodology/approach

    A systematic scoping studies review was performed. Peer-reviewed articles were searched in PsycInfo and Sociological Abstracts. Inclusion criteria were met by 25 articles.

    Findings

    Four higher-order categories with underpinning categories were derived in the analysis. They were modeled as follows: antecedent conditions affect, informal processes and practical efforts, which, in turn, affect inter-organizational trust and collaboration. These higher-order categories are all influenced by formal organizational aspects and the society in which they are found.

    Research limitations/implications

    The existing literature covering the chosen study focus is limited. Further studies are needed and the presented model can serve as a road map. Practical implications A series of questions derived from the categories of the model is presented. The questions are included as a tool for practical reflection for collaborating actors in common education, training or exercise settings or in after-action reviews.

    Originality/value

    The focus on social psychological aspects of civil-military inter-organizational collaboration, particularly in a total defense context, is new. The suggested relationship between superior themes adds knowledge to a research field dominated by sociological and political science approaches.

    Leader development in natural context: A grounded theory approach to discovering how military leaders grow2006In: Military Psychology, ISSN 0899-5605, E-ISSN 1532-7876, Vol. 18, p. S69-S81Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite an increasing number of programs that aim to develop or educate leaders, the underlying processes involved in leader development or growth are not well understood. This study was undertaken to discover what factors or processes are involved in leader development for junior military officers, from their own perspective and in the natural context of their career and life experiences. Military officers (N = 51) from 5 different countries were interviewed using a standardized approach, and interview transcripts were analyzed according to the constant comparative method of grounded theory, as elaborated by Glaser and Strauss (1967). Consistently across the 5 countries, the core of the process model of leader development is the social interaction between the young officer and his or her significant others (soldiers, peers, and superiors). In the favorable case, officers end this process feeling secure, being able to flexibly adapt their overt behavior on an underdistanced–overdistanced continuum according to situational demands, and have a firm professional identity.

    Leader development using group dynamic interventions: a systematic literature review2018In: Scandinavian Psychologist, ISSN 1894-5570, Vol. 5, article id e7Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This literature review aimed to synthesize the existing research on group dynamic interventions that are designed to enhance individual leadership development in organisations. Such interventions are typically intended to help leaders learn about both themselves and interpersonal relationships. A systematic mixed studies literature review with an integrated design was undertaken. The selection process resulted in nine articles that met the inclusion criteria. The scarcity of studies means that no reliable conclusion could be drawn on the sizes of effects and, thus, whether group dynamic interventions are effective or not. Given this situation, four tendencies could still be identified. First, interventions involving practical skills (e.g., problem-solving techniques) appear to be effective. Second, interventions focusing on inner processes (e.g., self-awareness, self-acceptance, and sensitivity to group processes) appear to have some favourable effects. Third, little evidence was found regarding the effectiveness of interventions aimed at improving leaders’ interpersonal skills. Fourth, identified enablers and neutralizers include group characteristics, facilitator qualities, intervention goals and focus, a safe climate, and opportunities for practice. The lack of evidence regarding effectiveness does not mean that group dynamic interventions are ineffective. It means only that more research is necessary to evaluate this type of developmental intervention.

    Linen in the hospital bed: Effects on patients' well-being1991In: Journal of Advanced Nursing, ISSN 0309-2402, E-ISSN 1365-2648, Vol. 16, no 8, p. 1004-1008Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study was to determine if using linen in hospital beds affects patients' well-being An experimental group consisting of 52 patients (mean age 64 4 years) at a medical ward used linen in the bottom sheet, the protective sheet, the pillow-case and the patient gown for 4 weeks A control group consisting of 40 patients (mean age 67 5 years) at the same ward was observed for 4 weeks using the conventional material (cotton, cotton/polyester) Marginal positive effects on patients' well-being were noted when linen was used It was discussed that the relative importance of the bed material to patients' well-being may be low, compared to medical treatment, nursing, etc Given the high cost of linen, about 15 times more than the conventional material, it was suggested that the health care system should refrain from large-scale use of linen in hospital beds

    Ledarskapets containerfunktion: en kvalitativ studie av militära mellanchefer2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Containerförmåga handlar i ledarskapssammanhang om att man som chef måste kunna varsebli, tolka och härbärgera signaler från högre nivå innan de förmedlas vidare nedåt i hierarkin. Härbärgeringen innefattar att transformera den högre nivåns budskap på ett sådant sätt att det blir meningsfullt för medarbetare på lägre nivåer, utan att budskapet för den skull förvanskas. Även det omvända gäller. Chefer måste kunna ta emot och härbärgera signaler ”från golvet” och föra dem vidare uppåt till högre chefer på ett konstruktivt sätt.

    Syftet med undersökningen var att få en fördjupad förståelse av de intrapsykiska delarna av ledarskapets containerfunktion och hur de samverkar med de beteendemässiga delarna. En intervjuundersökning genomfördes med 15 svenska militära officerare på mellanchefnivå. Studien ledde fram till en identifikation av ett antal detaljaspekter inom ledarskapets containerfunktion. Som exempel kan nämnas vikten av självdisciplin att motstå impulser att agera direkt för att skapa tid att analysera situationen och förbereda argument gentemot målgruppen. Studien visar vidare att ledares hantering av containerfunktionen är starkt relaterade till deras ledarskap mer generellt. Detta gäller dels individfaktorn ledarens personliga trygghet och erfarenhet, dels den relationella faktorn att bygga tillitsfulla relationer uppåt och nedåt.

    Daily hassles, their antecedents and outcomes among professional first responders: a systematic literature review2016In: Scandinavian Journal of Psychology, ISSN 0036-5564, E-ISSN 1467-9450, Vol. 57, no 4, p. 359-367Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Occupational groups such as firefighters, military officers, paramedics and police officers are exposed to a combination of acute, severe and accumulated everyday stress. Drawing on the daily hassles perspective on stress, the aim was to synthesize existing research on daily hassles in professional first responder settings into a theoretical model. A systematic mixed studies review with an integrated design was undertaken. The selection process resulted in 40 articles meeting the inclusion criteria. The selected papers represented two literature reviews, one qualitative study, eight longitudinal studies and 29 cross-sectional studies. Five superior categories emerged in the analysis: Individual antecedent and continuously framing factors, Environmental antecedent and continuously framing factors, Appraisal and coping processes, Daily hassles and Outcome. Suggestions for future research are presented

    Age and leadership: Comparisons of age groups in different kinds of work environment2021In: Management Research Review, ISSN 2040-8269, E-ISSN 2040-8277, Vol. 44, no 5, p. 661-676Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this study is twofold. First, to compare the self-rated leadership behaviors, leadership-related competencies and results of the leadership of younger, mid-aged and older leaders; and second to compare these aspects among younger leaders in different kinds of the work environment and between men and women. 

    Design/methodology/approach – Data was collected using the developmental leadership questionnaire from a sample of Swedish leadership course participants (N = 7,743). 

    Findings – The results showed that the younger group of leaders (29 years old or younger n = 539), rated themselves more negatively than the mid-aged (30–50 years, n = 5,208) and older (51 years or older, n = 1,996) leaders. Analysis of the group of younger leaders showed that those working in the private sector scored most favorably. The gender comparison revealed that young male leaders scored higher on negative conventional (transactional) and destructive leadership behaviors. A logistic regression analysis of the younger group showed that social competence, developmental leadership and destructive leadership (negative) influenced self-rated results of leadership. 

    Research limitations/implications – The study is based on leaders’ self-ratings only. 

    Practical implications – The results can be used in leadership development contexts and in individualized coaching or mentoring programs. 

    Originality/value – The results have new implications for leadership theory related to self-confidence, stereotypes, selection and organizational culture.

    Swedish military officers through other nations' eyes: experiences related to leadership theory, stereotypes, identity and military contextual history2016In: International Journal of Organizational Analysis, ISSN 1934-8835, E-ISSN 1758-8561, Vol. 24, no 4, p. 615-633Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    Globalisation of working life means that many organisations are manned by people from different countries. A potentially critical factor is how members from various nations are looked upon by their partner countries. Such perception may be more or less accurate and affect organisational outcomes. The military is no exception as modern warfare is characterised by multinational composition of task forces. The aim of this paper was to gain a deeper understanding of how military officers from other nations perceive Swedish military officers and their leadership qualities in particular.

    Design/methodology/approach

    Interviews were conducted with 20 military officers representing ten nations. Interview questions were deduced from the Developmental leadership model. Responses were first coded inductively according to the constant comparative method. Generated categories were then deductively related to this leadership model.

    Findings

    The analysis resulted in positive and negative patterns. The positive picture included Swedish officers being perceived as calm, competent and generally good at exhibiting exemplary leadership behaviour, showing individualised consideration and creating an inspiring atmosphere. The negative side included opinions such as Swedish officers being too emotionally restrained, exhibiting poor self-confidence, discussing too much before making decisions and having difficulties giving negative feedback. The results are discussed in relation to the Developmental leadership model and the stereotype concept.

    Research limitations/implications

    Small sample size and a focus on military organisations imply a low degree of generalisability.

    Practical implications

    Three suggestions regarding Swedish officer education are presented: officer students should be given an increased awareness of how they are perceived by others, decision-making without group support and giving negative feedback in a constructive, straight forward, but still considerate way, should be practiced and more attention should be paid to emotion management.

    Originality/value

    The paper addresses an increasing tendency in work organisations – a multinational composition of the work force. The foundation of study in leadership theory and the stereotype concept is new.

    Crisis management at the government offices: a Swedish case study2015In: Disaster Prevention and Management, ISSN 0965-3562, E-ISSN 1758-6100, Vol. 24, no 5, p. 542-552Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The purpose of this paper is to gain a deeper understanding of crisis management at the Swedish Government office level in an international crisis by using a multiperspective approach, and paying particular attention to factors contributing favorably to the management process.

    Design/methodology/approach

    The Eyjafjallajökull volcano eruption on Iceland in 2010 was accompanied by an ash cloud that caused serious air traffic problems in large parts of Europe. Interviews were conducted with seven high-level informants at the Swedish Government offices and two informants at the Swedish Aviation Authority. An interview guide inspired by governance, command and control, and leadership perspectives was used.

    Findings

    A Crisis Coordination Secretariat, organizationally placed directly under the prime minister, coordinated the operation. A combination of mandate (hard power) and social smoothness (soft power) on part of the Crisis Coordination Secretariat contributed to confidence building and a collaboration norm between the ministries, and between the ministries and their underlying agencies. Preparatory training, exercises and a high level of system knowledge on part of the Crisis Coordination Secretariat – contextual intelligence – also contributed to a favorable crisis management.

    Research limitations/implications

    The study relies on retrospective self-report data only from a limited group of informants making generalizations difficult.Practical implications– The organizational positioning of the Crisis Coordination Secretariat directly under the prime minister gave its members formal authority. These members in turn skillfully used social flexibility to build confidence and a will to collaborate. This combination of hard and soft power is recommended.

    Originality/value

    The multiperspective approach used when designing the interview guide and when interpreting the responses was new as well as the focus on factors contributing to crisis management success.

    Sörmlandskuppen: kartläggning av vårdkvalitet vid hörcentralen och pedagogiska hörselvården vid Mälarsjukhuset i Eskilstuna 19981998Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    En kartläggning gjordes 1998 vid hörcentralen och pedagogiska hörselvården vid Mälarsjukhuset i Eskilstuna av patienternas och personalens upplevelse av vårdens kvalitet. Personalens upplevelser av den psykosociala arbetsmiljön och av egna stressrelaterade symptom kartlades också. Deltagarna var 152 patienter (64 % svarsfrekvens) och 19 anställda (100 % svarsfrekvens). Flertalet patienter, liksom personalen, är tillfredsställda med huvuddelen av vården. Många, såväl patienter som personal, är mindre tillfredsställda med telefonframkomligheten. Väntetiden för fortsatt hjälp efter det inledande hörseltestet är för lång. Ett åtgärdsförslag presenteras som handlar om uppläggningen av enskilda patienters habilitering/rehabilitering.

    Abstract [sv]

    En kartläggning gjordes 1998 vid ortopedtekniska avdelningen Aktiv ortopedteknik Södermanland AB, vid Mälarsjukhuset i Eskilstuna, av patienternas och personalens upplevelse av vårdens kvalitet. Personalens upplevelser av psykosocial arbetsmiljö och av egna stressrelaterade symptom kartlades också. Deltagarna var 115 patienter (57 % svarsfrekvens) och 7 anställda (54 % svarsfrekvens). Flertalet patienter, liksom personalen, är tillfredsställda med huvuddelen av vården. Många av såväl patienter som personal är dock mindre tillfredsställda med väntetiden, med att telefonframkomligheten är för låg och med att inte personalen har efterfrågat hur hjälpmedlet fungerat. Ett åtgärdsförslag presenteras som handlar om uppläggningen av enskilda patienters habilitering/rehabilitering.

    Abstract [sv]

    En kartläggning gjordes 1998 vid syncentralen, Mälarsjukhuset i Eskilstuna, av patienternas och personalens upplevelse av vårdens kvalitet. Personalens upplevelser av psykosocial arbetsmiljö och av egna stressrelaterade symptom kartlades också. Deltagare var 115 patienter (55 % svarsfrekvens) och 8 anställda (100 % svarsfrekvens). Flertalet patienter, liksom personalen, är tillfredsställda med huvuddelen av vården. Många, såväl patienter som personal, är mindre tillfredsställda med att patienterna inte kan delta i beslut om rehabilitering, att kontinuiteten i habilitering/rehabilitering brister, och att de inte får information om övriga tillgängliga habiliterings/rehabiliteringsresurser. Ett åtgärdsförslag presenteras.

    A comprehensive system for leader evaluation and development2003In: Leadership & Organization Development Journal, ISSN 0143-7739, E-ISSN 1472-5347, Vol. 24, no 1, p. 16-25Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim was to describe the development of a theoretical model for leader evaluation and development, an instrument based on this model, and a strategy for large scale implementation in the Swedish armed forces. The model rests on an interactional person by situation paradigm. It emphasises “developmental leadership”, which is inspired by transformational and functionalistic leadership approaches. The developmental leadership questionnaire (DLQ) was operationalised from the model and refined through structural equation modelling. The model and the DLQ will be used for three purposes: yearly evaluation of all personnel in the Swedish armed forces; yearly planning dialogues between each employee and his or her nearest supervisor; and a tool for leadership training. The implementation strategy includes an initial course in developmental leadership for all colonels. This is followed by the selection and training of local trainers, who, in turn, initiate the comprehensive programme locally. The system should be fully implemented by 2005.
