Leadership and leadership styles in the classroom : Teacher's experiences of his leadership style, democratic or authoritarian. (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim is to examine teachers own experiences of leadership, leadership styles and what good leadership is and to find out how teacher leadership can influence students according to teachers.

 My questions are: 

  • How do teachers evaluate leadership and their own leadership styles?
  • What is good leadership according to teachers?
  • How can the teachers leadership styles affect students in the classroom according to teachers?

The method used is a qualitative method based on interviews with five teachers. The reason why I have chosen a qualitative research method is that I believe that this method can give me better results by understanding the world from the interviewees’ point of view.

I have come to the conclusion that the interviewed teachers believe that leadership and management style play a large role in the teacher's profession and that the teacher's leadership style in the classroom democratic or authoritarian have a major impact on students. The teacher should consider his management and find some sort of balance by exercising both democratic and authoritarian leadership style and adapt it to the situation. And In terms of results regarding good leadership of the interviewed teachers, I can say that good leadership is largely about good relationships between teachers and students and that a teacher can become accepted as leader by winning students confidence.
