Generations and leadership : A study of generational differences in leadership style (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att kvantitativt undersöka generationstillhörighetens betydelse för nyttjad ledarskapsstil och att bidra till kartläggandet av generationstillhörighetens betydelse för arbetslivet. Frågeställningen var om generationstillhörighet kan predicera fördelning inom modellen FRLM, en modell som inkluderar de tre ledarskapsstilarna transformativt, transaktionellt och låt gå-ledarskap. I studien fick 274 chefer skatta sin ledarskapsstil via självskattningsformuläret MLQ Leader Form (5x Short). Resultatet visade inga statistiskt signifikanta skillnader mellan generationer. Tre av bakgrundsvariablerna visade sig predicera transformativt ledarskap: sektor (privat), kön (kvinna) och ledarskapsutbildning (ökad mängd/omfattning), av vilka ledarskapsutbildning hade en mycket hög signifikansnivå och resultatet från sektor vilar på en tvivelaktig grund. Bakgrundsvariabeln sektor predicerade även transaktionellt ledarskap. Slutsatsen blev att det inte tycks finnas skillnader i ledarskapsstil mellan generationer i dagsläget men att ytterligare forskning behövs. 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to quantitatively investigate the significance of generational differences for utilized leadership styles. Its goal was to contribute to the mapping of the significance of generations for working life. The issue was whether generation could predict results on the Full Range Leadership Model, including three leadership styles, transformational, transactional and laissez-faire. 274 leaders assessed their leadership style through a self-assessment form: MLQ Leader Form (5x Short) Results showed no statistically significant differences between the generations. In contrast, three other background factors turned out to predict transformational leadership: sector (private), gender (women) and leadership training (increased amount/extent), of which leadership training had a very high level of significance and sector rests on a questionable ground. The background variable sector turned out  to predict transactional leadership. It was concluded that it appears to be no differences between generations, but further research is needed.
