Abstract [en]

Background: The world of sports possesses a lot of knowledge when it comes to leadarship and coaching. Coaching as a term is relatively new to the business industry and something that is up and coming among alot of companies. Leadership and coaching are two terms that can be combined with each other both in sports and in the business industry.

Objectives: This study aims to compare leadership in sports and in the business industry. The purpose is to see if they can learn from each other and how they define the term leadership.

Method: Interviews were chosen as a method in this study. Six individual interviews were performed and there were three leaders from the business industry and three leaders from the world of sport participating in the study. The criteria to be a part of the study was that they had a couple of year's experience from working with leadership.

Results: The result shows that leaders in the business industry work were similar as the leaders in the world of sports. There are many things that they think they can learn from each other. One of the things is how to work with setting up goals. In the business industry they work a lot with goals based on result and in the world of sports they work wih goals based on performance. This is one thing that the leaders in the business industry can learn from sports. The results show that leadership is about engaging another human being to work hard and do their best. In both worlds you need to be able to lead by example and adjust your leadership to the situation.
