The impact of shared leadership in an organization : A casestudy about shared leadership (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of our study is to investigate what difference a shared leadership can make in an organization. We also wanted to know how social work professionals describe shared leadership and how its changes and consequences work out in an organization. To be able to answer the purpose of this study, we decided to do a case study. The interviews are conducted in an social work organization. We have conducted a focus group interview with three employees, an interview with each of the two area managers having a shared leadership, an interview with the social manager, an interview with the operations manager and one with a politician. In this study we used both an abductive and a qualitative approach by doing six interviews. The conclusion of our study is that the implement of a shared leadership have many advantages for the organization-from the employees at the bottom to the politician at the top. The results show that it is not an easy task to perform a shared leadership. It takes two willingly people and a lot of characteristics to do it. We have learned that this type of leadership is not for all managers. Some managers want to run the show on their own.
