Title: The reflective leadership role in social service organizations


Supervisor: Anders Giertz

Assessor: Jan Petersson



I have studied the leadership role of unit managers in social service organizations and their relationship to the concept of reflective approach. I started from a curiosity about how and if unit managers within social services use the concept reflective approach in their leadership role, and how their organizations look upon this and what the consequences are. If in the long term, this affects the individual receiving assistance. All the interviewed persons come from different places, services and organizations. The study is qualitative, with a number of interviews conducted with unit managers. The results show that the concept of reflective approach is used in different ways, and it does not depend on the type of organization whether or not it is used. It could also make a difference for the individual receiving assistance.
