The purpose of this study was to examine whether there were any differences in how first-line managers within municipal care rated their management leadership qualities, and structural empowerment before and after the course in "leadership, learning and improvement". The study had a quasi-experimental design and 64 managers participated. There was a significant improvement in the LaMI factor “Achievement orientation”, after participation in the course "leadership, learning and improvement". In other factors, there was no significant difference before and after training. Regarding CWEQ a significant improvement was reported for the factor resources after participation in the "leadership, learning and improvement" course. Moreover, there was no significant difference for the other factors. The present study demonstrates the value and importance of development / training programs to strengthen and increase the managers’ influence in elderly care. This is particularly the importance of improving results orientation factor (LaMI), and factor resources (CWEQ). The findings of this study showed significant improvements in both the above factors.
