Abstract [sv]

Frågan om chefers ledarskaps påverkan på de anställdas hälsa har aktualiserats under senare tid. Dock finns inte mycket forskning på området, vilket gör att denna uppsats kan komma att fylla en funktion i detta sammanhang. Uppsatsen har som syfte att ta reda på hur förskolechefer i en svensk kommun utövar sitt ledarskap och om det går att se någon koppling till medarbetarnas frisknärvaro. Med hjälp av kvalitativ metod där fem semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes besvaras följande frågor i kandidatuppsatsen:

 

  1. Vilket slags ledarskap utövar förskolecheferna?
  2. Vilka likheter finns i ledarskapsstilarna mellan de förskolechefer som har hög frisknärvaro bland medarbetarna?
  3. Skiljer sig ledarskapet åt, i så fall hur, mellan de chefer som har hög frisknärvaro och de med mellanhög och låg dito?

 

Min slutsats är att det finns likheter i hur cheferna utövar sitt ledarskap. Alla fem har starkt fokus på produktionsorienterat ledarskap, medan det skiljer en hel del mellan dem när det gäller det relationsorienterade dito. Tre av fem utövar mer eller mindre det salutogena ledarskapet. Den chef som har lägst frisknärvaro är den som leder på ett mest produktionsorienterat sätt. Resultatet av denna studie tyder på att ledarskap, för att öka frisknärvaron, bör utövas med tydlighet, närvaro och delaktighet. 

Abstract [en]

The issue of managers' leadership influence on the health of employees has been actualized recently. However, there is a lack of research in this area, which motivates a focus on this topic. This study aims to find out how pre-school managers in a Swedish municipality exercises leadership and if you can see any connection to the staff's work attendance. By using the qualitative method in which five semi-structured interviews were conducted, I have got some answers to the following questions in this study:

 

 

1. What kind of leadership does preschool heads exercise?

2. What similarities are there in leadership styles between the  pre-school managers who have high work-attendance among staff?

3. Is there a difference in the leadership between the managers who have high work attendance and those with medium- and low ditto? If so what differs between them?

 

My conclusion is that there are similarities in how managers exercise their leadership. All five have a strong focus on production oriented leadership, while it differs more between them when it comes to the relationship oriented one. Three of the five exercise more or less the salutogenic leadership. The manager with staff with the lowest work attendance is the one who exercise her leadership in the most production-oriented way. Results from this study indicate that leadership, to increase work attendance, should be exercised with clarity, presence and inclusion.
