Abstract [sv]

Attutforska och definiera vilka faktorer som bygger upp en långsiktigt hållbarverksamhet med välmående och flexibla medarbetare är viktigt i ett samhälle medkrav på snabba förändringar. Appreciative leadership är en ledarskapsfilosofivars praktik i teorin kommer ur de fem kärnstrategier (5 I) och vars förväntadeeffekter starkt korrelerar med det som i litteraturen be-skrivs somfriskfaktorer i arbetslivet. Syftet med arbetet är att bidra med kunskap kringhur de fem kärnstrategierna kan omsättas i praktik och utforska om utövandetger effekter på den psykosociala arbetsmiljön. I studien användes mixed methodsoch resultatet har sin grund en kvantitativ enkät som följdes upp medkvalitativa djupintervjuer samt fokusgrupp. Till grund för resultatet låg ocksåövergripande observationer samt dokumentanalys. Resultatet visar att samtligafem kärnstrategier i hög grad finns närvarande i verksamheten och att samtligamed-arbetare skattade och beskrev sin psykosociala arbetsmiljö som utmärkt. Detkunde också konstateras att utövande av de fem kärnstrategierna i verksamhetentill stor del sker genom ett antal väl valda arbetssätt och metoder, blandannat en stark hjälpande kultur, inre ledarskap och klar kommunikation. Iresultatet går även att utläsa att det finns utmaningar med arbets-sättet ochatt det finns några grundläggande förutsättningar som beskrivs viktiga för attarbets-sättet som helhet ska fungera, däribland hög grundbemanning och starkgemensam värde-grund. Utifrån att kärnstrategiernas praktiska utövande isamtliga steg i studien beskrivs bidra till arbetslivets friskfaktorer ärslutsatsen att det är högst troligt att ett medvetet och praktiskt utövande av5 I kan bidra till en hälsosam arbetsplats, öka arbetsglädjen och iförlängningen minska risken för arbetsrelaterad ohälsa.

Abstract [en]

In a society   which demands rapid change, exploring and defining which factors build up a   long-term sustainable organisation with prosperous and flexible employees is   important. Appreciative leadership is a leadership philosophy which can be   split into five core strategies. (5 I) These strategies strongly correlate   with what is described in the literature as ”health factors” in the work   environment. The purpose of this study was to discover how the five core   strategies can be put in to practice and to explore what effect this has on   the psychosocial work environment. The study used mixed methods and the   result is based on a quantitative questionnaire that was followed up by   qualitative in-depth interviews and focus group. The basis for the result was   also general observation and a brief literature review. The result showed   that all five core strategies were present in the organization and that all   em-ployees described their psychosocial environment as excellent. It was also   noticed that the practice of the five core strategies in the organization   takes place through a number of well-chosen methods, including a strong   supportive culture, internal leadership and clear communi-cation. The result   also revealed that there were challenges with the actual way of working and   that there were some basic conditions that were described as important for   the method as a whole. These included high staffing and strong common values.   The practice of the core stra-tegies were described as contributing to the   health factors of working. It was concluded that it is highly likely that a   conscious practice of 5 I can contribute to a healthy work place, increase   work satisfaction and in the long term decrease the risk for work-related   illness.
