    An idea paper on leadership theory integration2012In: Management Research Review, ISSN 2040-8269, E-ISSN 2040-8277, Vol. 35, no 3/4, p. 177-191Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to pursue an idea on leadership theory integration which includes two integrative attempts. The first involves three different leadership models (the developmental/transformational leadership model, the authentic leadership model, and the indirect leadership model). The second consists of a suggestion of how this integrated model, in turn, can be integrated into an interactional person-by-situation paradigm including a process-over-time perspective.

    Design/methodology/approach – A qualitative analysis of the three existing leadership models mentioned above was performed. In the second integrative step, the following concepts were added: individual characteristics (general and stable as well as specific, of importance in a given situation); contextual characteristics (general more stable contextual profile as well as specific contextual profile in a given situation); appraisal and sensemaking processes over time; trust; and psychological capital.

    Findings – An integrated leadership model is proposed which rests on three explicit hypotheses with two addendums. Empirical support for the suggested model is evaluated.

    Practical implications – The presented idea may be of value in recruitment and selection, leadership development programmes, and organisational design.

    Originality/value – The theoretical integration of existing models is new and could act as a conceptual bridge.

    Preparing for disaster: Public attitudes and actions1997In: Disaster Prevention and Management, ISSN 0965-3562, E-ISSN 1758-6100, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 11-21Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Investigates what people are prepared to do in the way of disaster preparation, and examines how these assessments may be related to personal factors and attitudes. Draws on a theoretical model of the area, developed in a previous study using a qualitative grounded theory approach. Surveys 925 persons representative of the Swedish population between the ages of 16 and 74. Data were collected in a postal questionnaire. Shows that the preparations for disasters which had been carried out by the greatest number were installation of smoke detectors, participating in practice at school or work, and learning first aid. The least performed preparations included joining a voluntary organization or training programme, stocking up with tinned food at home, taking extra insurance, and learning how to deal with psychological crisis reactions. Finds considerable subgroup differences; and that the two key dimensions of the model - sense of personal meaningfulness and societal commitment - account for the differences. Suggests actions to be taken by the Swedish authorities.

    Destrudo-L: Development of a short scale designed to measure destructive leadership behaviours2012In: Leadership & Organization Development Journal, ISSN 0143-7739, E-ISSN 1472-5347, Vol. 33, no 4, p. 383-400Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to develop a short and easy to use yet psychometrically sound instrument designed to measure destructive leadership behaviours in a military context.

    Design/methodology/approach – First, examples of destructive leadership behaviours in a military context were collected using a qualitative approach. Second, these examples were operationalised and pilot tested, which resulted in a 20-item questionnaire called Destrudo-L. Third, data were collected from three Swedish military groups (n=428). Dimensionality of the instrument was analysed using structural equation modelling. Conventional psychometric assessments of reliability and validity were performed.

    Findings – A nested hierarchical model with a general factor and the following specific factors emerged: arrogant, unfair; threats, punishments, overdemands; ego-oriented, false; passive, cowardly; and uncertain, unclear, messy. Meaningful subgroup differences and relationships with a criterion variable (lack of motivation/propensity to leave) were found. More use of active forms was reported by subordinates of younger military commanders and more use of passive forms was marked by subordinates of senior military managers.

    Practical implications – The instrument is easy to administer and interpret (norm values are provided) and can be used in leader evaluation, as well as leader development, contexts.

    Originality/value – The main contribution is methodological – the development of a new scale. Additional findings are a strong positive correlation between active and passive forms of destructive leadership behaviours in a military context, as well as significant differences between groups with different ranks.

    Personality development in nursing education: A Swedish study1993In: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 79-83Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study was to explore personality development during nursing education. The sample consisted of 122 Swedish nursing students. Ninety-three per cent of the students were female and the mean age at the beginning of the nursing education (which lasts for two years) was 27.6 years. Personality inventories were administered at the beginning and end of the education. The post-education assessment rendered several statistically significant differences of means. Compared with the pre-education assessment, the nursing students reported a more positive profession-oriented self-perception at the end of the education, a stronger ideal, real, and mirror identity, a reduced trait anxiety, stronger needs for achievement, exhibition, autonomy, dominance, and nurturance, and a weaker abasement need. The practical significance of the results was discussed.

    Indirect leadership under severe stress: A qualitative inquiry into the 2004 Kosovo riots2007In: International Journal of Organizational Analysis, ISSN 1934-8835, E-ISSN 1758-8561, Vol. 15, no 1, p. 23-34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this research is to develop a theoretical understanding of indirect leadership in a severely stressful peacekeeping context, focusing on the perspective of subordinates. Peacekeeping missions in recent decades have led to increased exposure to acute danger.

    Design/methodology/approach – Retrospective in-depth interviews were carried out with 17 Norwegian officers and soldiers, who were involved in the handling of a violent riot in Kosovo during a peacekeeping mission. The interviews were analyzed using a grounded theory approach.

    Findings – A model emerged with three categories: Situational Characteristics, Organizational Characteristics, and the Commander's Intent. A related core category was labelled Subordinates' Appraisal or Sensemaking. During the climax of the riot, a strict following of the ordinary chain of command was impractical. Local initiatives at lower organizational levels were needed, but these, in turn, required competence and a trustful organizational environment.

    Research limitations/implications – Not representative of the entire population. Given the male-dominated military context under consideration, there could be no meaningful analysis of possible gender-related differences. The results related to a general model of indirect leadership and specific stress. Organizational theory-related additions and limitations are suggested.

    Practical implications – The proposed model may be a practical tool for management education.

    Originality/value – The study's identification of key aspects of indirect leadership in severely stressful contexts is a useful addition to the literature.

    Appraisal and coping processes immediately before ejection: A study of Australian and Swedish pilots1990In: Military Psychology, ISSN 0899-5605, E-ISSN 1532-7876, Vol. 2, p. 63-78Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on appraisal and coping processes among military pilots during ejection episodes. A total of 49 ejection episodes were reported by 24 pilots from the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) and 24 pilots from the Swedish Air Force (SAF). Two clusters of coping strategies were identified- instrumental self-management and emotional self-management-and both forms of coping were clearly related to effective problem solving. The emotional self-management strategies suggest an effective block of disturbing thoughts and emotions. Good performance was associated with challenge appraisals and considerable use of instrumental self-management. Poor performance was associated with appraising the episodes as irrelevant or threatening. Ejections caused by technical malfunctions were handled more effectively psychologically than were ejections caused by human errors. Only minor differences were found between the Australian and Swedish samples.

    Testutveckling med personlighetspsykologiskt fokus: En litteraturstudie2019Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Rapporten summerar en inledande litteraturstudie inom ett av Försvarsmakten beställt forskningsprojekt benämnt ”Testutveckling med personlighetspsykologiskt fokus”. Den övergripande frågeställningen har formulerats som:

    - Hur kan mätinstrument (tester och/eller intervjuguider) avseende personlighetspsykologiskt orienterade bakomliggande faktorer utvecklas, prövas och implementeras för: (1) destruktiva ledarbeteenden, (2) ledares informella ”political skills” (3) ledares containerförmåga, samt (4) militära kontextrelaterade aspekter av emotionell stabilitet. Under delprojektets inledande år (2019) genomfördes denna litteraturstudie.

    Resultatet redovisas med följande rubriker under vart och ett av de tre förstnämnda områdena: Vad är det? – definitioner; Vilka konsekvenser får det; och Vilka bakomliggande faktorer kan identifieras, med särskilt fokus på personlighetspsykologiska? Området ”militära kontextrelaterade aspekter av emotionell stabilitet” befinner sig redan på den personlighetspsykologiska nivån och här presenteras delaspekter av emotionell stabilitet liksom relaterade psykologiska förhållanden.

    The role of the commander in future missions: A leadership perspective2011Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study was to obtain a deeper understanding of the force commander role in modern multinational and multifunctional missions. Several sources of data were collected: (1) a focus group interview with five former Swedish force commanders having served in Afghanistan, (2) nine individual in-depth interviews with the same sample of commanders, (3) one in-depth interview with a Swedish Civilian Representant (an ambassador) serving in Afghanistan, (4) facts on selection ciriteria and education/training of force commanders, and (5) formal documents where the role of the commander is dealt with. The results were related to a theoretical leadership model which implies that a number of individual and contextual characteristic interact and shape a commander’s appraisal or sensemaking of a given situation. This meaning, applied to what is taking place, in turn generates a number of leadership behaviours which, to a greater or lesser degree, affect the outcome. Conclusions and research suggestion for the future focus on the following:

    - civilian leadership of the military operation

    - task complexity

    - culture

    - end state

    - self-management.

    Test of brief scale designed to measure high-level managers' indirect leadership2024In: Management Research Review, ISSN 2040-8269, Vol. 47, no 1, p. 86-98Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The Indirect Leadership Questionnaire (ILQ) is constructed to measure important parts of a theoretical model of indirect leadership to be used in leadership courses for high-level managers. The ILQ consists of 15 model-derived items plus extra space that provides for free-text comments. This study aims to evaluate the psychometric properties of the ILQ, its predictive power and practical usefulness in indirect leadership courses and to evaluate the indirect leadership model in the light of new data.

    Design/methodology/approach – The study sample consisted of 225 higher managers and 6–10 of their subordinates (total: 1,703). The latter were working at least two hierarchical levels below their higher manager. The managers made self-ratings, and the subordinates rated their respective higher manager using the ILQ.

    Findings – Results showed that the ILQ has acceptable psychometric properties in terms of dimensionality(two model-compatible factors were obtained), reliability, discriminability and predictive power. Previousproblems with many “Don’t know” responses from subordinates working two or more hierarchical levels below their higher manager were considerably reduced. A qualitative analysis of the free-text responsess howed that indirect leadership behaviors that can be seen as inspirational influence and communication skills should be more emphasized in future indirect leadership courses. The leaders’ personality, task-related competence and performance-orientation were also highlighted more than in the indirect leadership model.

    Research limitations/implications – It was concluded that the ILQ is a useful tool in indirect leadership courses but that it is too limited to be used as a basis for theory development of indirect leadership.

    Originality/value – The ILQ has acceptable psychometric properties and provides an easy-to-use tool togain practical, usable knowledge of the “how’s” of indirect leadership

    Sense of coherence among elderly somatic patients: Predictive power regarding future needs of care1995In: Journal of Nursing Management, ISSN 0966-0429, E-ISSN 1365-2834, Vol. 3, no 6, p. 307-311Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The main aim was to study the predictive power of sense of coherence regarding future needs of care among elderly patients evaluated as medically ready for discharge from somatic emergency care. A secondary aim was to study the consistency of sense of coherence over time among patients with this kind of experience. The sample consisted of 53 Swedish patients (mean age 82.8 years, SD = 6.6 years) who had completed their medical treatment at surgical or orthopaedic departments. The predominant diagnosis was lower limb fractures. Sense of coherence was assessed twice, on the day the patient was evaluated as medically ready for discharge and 1 month later. On the second assessment occasion, 28 patients had returned to their homes, 17 were staying at institutions, and eight had died. Patients who returned to their homes reported the strongest sense of coherence while still in hospital. Patients who were staying at institutions scored lowest on the overall sense of coherence scale and on the comprehensibility subscale. Patients who died before the second measurement occasion scored lowest on the meaningfulness subscale. A correlation of 0.51 was noted between the two assessments of sense of coherence, indicating a moderate temporal consistency

    Abstract [en]

    The sense of coherence (SOC) concept has been criticized on conceptual and psychometric grounds. The aim of this study was to develop the concept using structural equation modelling. The short 13-item version of the SOC questionnaire was used and data were collected from two different samples. Each sample consisted of about 2000 individuals, selected to be representative of the Swedish population. A model with a general factor and two subordinate specific factors yielded a satisfactory solution in both samples. The two factors were labelled Social Comprehension and Commitment and Unpleasant Emotions and Inner Tension respectively. It was concluded that the 13-item SOC scale could to a cel rain degree be regarded as a measure of negative affectivity and that the suggested model makes the SOC concept move theoretically coherent.

    Sense of coherence, socioeconomic conditions, and health: Interrelationships in a nation-wide Swedish sample1996In: European Journal of Public Health, ISSN 1101-1262, E-ISSN 1464-360X, Vol. 6, no 3, p. 175-180Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the distribution of sense of coherence (SOC) in common demographic and socioeconomic subgroups in a nation-wide representative sample. It also explores the relationship between SOC and these conditions, on the one hand and self-reported indicators of health, on the other. The sample consisted of 2,003 Swedes; 976 men and 1,027 women. The mean age was 44.2 years (SD = 16.6 years). The sample was selected by SIFO, the biggest Swedish market research institute, to be representative of the Swedish population between the ages of 15 and 75 years. All participants responded to a mailed questionnaire including Antonovsky's short SOC questionnaire, common socioeconomic and sodal situation variables and health questions. The distribution of SOC scores in different subgroups was partly inconsistent with previous studies. A sex difference was found; men scored significantly higher on the SOC scale than women. Regarding age, SOC scores increased with increasing age. Bivariate statistics showed that SOC was more strongly related to general well-being and psychological symptoms than to overall physical health and somatic symptoms. SOC was also more strongly related to health among women than men. Multivariate statistics (separately for men and women) indicated that SOC was more strongly related to the health indicators than age, education and income levels, number of persons in the household and number of friends. The possibility of a conceptual overlap between SOC and self-assessments of health, well-being and psychological symptoms in particular is discussed.

    Appraisal and coping processes in acute time-limited stressful situations: A study of police officers1988In: European Journal of Personality, ISSN 0890-2070, E-ISSN 1099-0984, Vol. 2, no 4, p. 259-276Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on the appraisal and coping process in acute, time-limited stressful situations in a stress experienced group: 54 Swedish police officers. Each police officer retrospectively reported their thoughts, emotions, and actions during five recent stressful job events. The relations among appraisals of threat and of coping options, seven forms of problem- and emotion-focused coping strategies, and selfrated performance were examined. Compared with previous studies of ordinary people in stressful situations, the police officers felt less threatened, appraised the situations as more solvable, and used considerably more problem-focused forms of coping. Age had a significant effect on appraisal, while organizational position had a significant effect on coping. Using latent profile analysis, four appraisal styles were obtained. Consistency of cross-situational appraisal style amongst individuals was high. The functional relationships among variables, i.e. appraisal, coping, and performance, are discussed.
