Are you on your period? : A qualitative study on the effects of PMS and PMDD on leadership (English)
Abstract [en]

Purpose and problem statement: The purpose of this study is to identify how PMS/PMDD affects a leaders leadership. Therefore the individual and the experienced symptoms involving PMS/PMDD are studied. This to identify potential connections between the diagnoses and theories about leadership.

  • How is leadership affected by PMS and PMDD?

 Method: The study is conducted through an inductive reasoning and qualitative interviews with six informants. The informants helped us understand the empirical field, which in order lead us to identify relevant theories for our study.

 Conclusion: The study showed that leadership is affected by PMS and PMDD because of changes in the individual’s personal characteristics during the time of their diagnosis. The individual can go from being a good leader for two weeks, to seeing themselves as a bad leader the remaining two weeks. The change can be recognized by seeing positive characteristics that define a good leader change into the opposite.

 Through this study it is apparent to us that there is an opportunity for further research in this subject. It can be done by performing a bigger study or by including a co-worker perspective, since a leader needs its co-workers to be able to lead.

Abstract [sv]

Syfte och forskningsfråga: Syftet med denna studie är att identifiera hur PMS/PMDS ger upphov till konsekvenser som påverkar individens ledarskap. Således studeras individens erfarenheter kring de upplevda symptomen till följd av PMS/PMDS. Detta för att identifiera eventuella samband mellan dessa och teorier kring ledarskap.

  • Hur kan ledarskap påverkas av PMS och PMDS?

Metod: Studien har en induktiv ansats och utgår ifrån kvalitativa intervjuer med sex informanter. Informanterna har hjälpt oss att förstå det empiriska fältet för att vi sedan ska kunna identifiera relevanta teorier för vår studie.

Slutsats: Studien visar att ledarskap påverkas av PMS och PMDS genom att individens personliga attribut förändras under perioden för diagnoserna. Individen kan gå från att vara en bra ledare i två veckor till att se sig själv som en sämre ledare resterande två veckor. Det kan visa sig genom att positiva egenskaper som definierar en god ledare istället blir sämre.

Vi kan se att det finns möjlighet till vidare forskning genom att utföra större studier eller genom att inkludera ett medarbetarperspektiv, eftersom ledare behöver medarbetare för att kunna leda.
