Leadership intelligence in managers and leaders in private companies: a focus on spiritual intelligence (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna tvärsnittsstudie var att undersöka, det som i studien benämns, själslig intelligens, hos chefer och ledare i näringslivet samt att validera instrument för vad som i studien benämns ledarintelligens med fokus på själslig intelligens. Studien utvärderade den själsliga intelligensen hos chefer och ledare samt om det var någon nivåskillnad på den själsliga intelligensen hos kvinnor och män. I studien användes en enkät där deltagarna fick svara på påståenden kring själslig, emotionell och rationell intelligens. Studien validerade två skalor för själslig intelligens utifrån ett kanadensiskt instrument, SISRI (The Spiritual Intelligence Self-Report Inventory), en skala för själslig intelligens, (SQ), som ingick i ett svenskt instrument, LIQ (Leadership Intelligence Questionnaire), samt en ny skala för själslig intelligens, NySQ. Det var 90 chefer och ledare i Västra Götalands näringsliv, 37 kvinnor och 53 män som besvarade enkäten, medelåldern var 47 år. Enkätsvaren analyserades med hjälp av kvantitativa metoder. Studien validerade Ronthys skala för själslig intelligens som visade på positiva signifikanta samband med två skalor som är framtagna med avsikt att de ska mäta liknande begrepp. Resultaten visade att kvinnor hade en högre nivå av själslig intelligens än män samt att chefer och ledare med hög nivå av själslig intelligens även hade hög nivå av rationell intelligens. Resultaten kastade nytt ljus över förmågor som i vår tid kanske inte har värderats tillräckligt i organisationer eller diskuterats i formella sammanhang.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this cross-sectional study was to investigate, what in this study is defined as, spiritual intelligence in managers and leaders in private companies, and to validate instruments that measure, as the study defines as, leadership intelligence with a focus on spiritual intelligence. The study evaluated the spiritual intelligence of managers and leaders, and if there was differences in the level of spiritual intelligence between women and men. The study used a questionnaire in which participants were asked to answer questions about spiritual, emotional and rational intelligence. The study validated two scales of spiritual intelligence based on the Canadian instrument, SISRI (The Spiritual Intelligence Self-Report Inventory), one scale for spiritual intelligence, (SQ), which was part of a Swedish instrument, LIQ (Leadership Intelligence Questionnaire), and a new scale for the spiritual intelligence, NySQ. 90 managers and leaders in Västra Götaland, 37 women and 53 men, responded to the survey, the average age was 47 years. The survey responses were analyzed using quantitative methods. The study validated Ronthy´s scale of spiritual intelligence that showed a positive significant correlation with two scales that are designed to measure similar concepts. The results showed that women had a higher level of spiritual intelligence than men, and that managers and leaders with a high level of spiritual intelligence also had a high level of rational intelligence. The results shed new lights on abilities that might not have been valued enough in organizations or discussed in formal contexts.
