Abstract [en]

In today’s tough business environment the need for good and efficient leaders are becoming more and more important. The businesses are in constant change, the world is more unpredictable and the competences of the employees are much greater today, which also calls for a new type of leader, a leader who not only is authoritarian, but also possesses soft skills. In this environment where there is this greater focus on leaders, leadership developments have emerged and increased in number over the last ten to twenty years. They try to develop leaders in all domains of their life, both professional and personal and the model we work with in this paper is Total Leadership, this model implies that you try to accomplish being a better leader throughout your whole life as a leader, to be whole, genuine and innovative, no matter career or position in life. The purpose with this essay is to investigate the outcome of leadership developments and see whether or not these leaders feel that they have become more efficient leaders. This was done by a qualitative research where we interviewed twelve leaders who had undergone a leadership development at a leadership development company called GestaltPartner. We reached the conclusions that all informants have had great value of the development and feel that they have reached a greater personal development that also reflects on their professional skills that in the end makes them more efficient leaders.
