Abstract [sv]

Trots att det finns indikationer att egenskaper som är vanligt förekommande bland svenska chefer kan relateras till aspekter som återfinns i studier om hållbart ledarskap finns det ingen forskning som undersöker denna typ av ledarskap i Sverige och bland svenska ledare. Syftet med denna studie är att beskriva det svenska hållbara ledarskapet. Genom en kvalitativ ansats har vi samlat in data i form av artiklar och texter för att ge svar på hur det svenska hållbara ledarskapet beskrivs och vad de mest förekommande aspekterna är när svenska chefer talar om sig själva som hållbara. Resultatet visar att det svenska hållbara ledarskapet syftar till att vara ekonomiskt, socialt och ekologiskt hållbar, samt innovativ och att ledare ser och involverar sina anställda. Överlag beskrivs inte svenska chefer som hållbara. Vissa vd:ar arbetar aktivt med social och ekologisk hållbarhet och många besitter egenskaper som är typiska för hållbart ledarskap men inte i tillräcklig utsträckning för att definieras som hållbara ledare.

Abstract [en]

Although there are indications that typical characteristics of Swedish managers can be related to aspects found in sustainable leadership studies, there is no research that examines this kind of leadership in Sweden and among Swedish leaders. The purpose of this study is to describe the Swedish sustainable leadership. Through a qualitative approach, we have collected and analysed data in form of articles and texts to provide answers to how the Swedish sustainable leadership is described and what the most common aspects are when Swedish managers talk about themselves as sustainable. The results show that the Swedish sustainable leadership aims at being economically, socially and ecologically sustainable, innovative and that employees are being valued and seen. Overall, Swedish managers are not described as sustainable. Some CEOs work actively with social and ecological sustainability, and many possess characteristics that are typical of sustainable leadership, but not to a sufficient extent to be defined as sustainable leaders. Henceforth, the language of the essay is Swedish.
