Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att undersöka vilka av värderingarna inom spiritual leadership som framträder i ledarskapet hos ledare i Sverige och om det finns en indikation av spiritual leadership i deras ledarskap. Den teoretiska referensramen grundar sig i ledarskapets betydelse i kvalitetsutveckling, värderingar inom ledarskap och spiritual leadership. Det vetenskapliga förhållningssättet är hermeneutiskt, ansatsen induktiv och datainsamlingsmetoden är mixad metod bestående av både enkätundersökning och intervjuer. Resultatet visar att alla värderingar baserade i spiritual leadership används av ledarna och upplevs även av medarbetarna. Dock finns det en diskrepans mellan ledarnas och medarbetarnas syn på vilka som är mest och minst förekommande. Det finns också en diskrepans kring i hur stor utsträckning som värderingarna upplevs förekomma i ledarskapet. Slutsatsen är att det finns tendenser till viss indikation på spiritual leadership genom att alla värderingar inom spiritual leadership upplevs i ledarens beteende både ur ledarnas- och medarbetarnas perspektiv. Det behövs dock mer djupgående forskning för att till fullo avgöra i vilken grad ett spirituellt ledarskap används bland svenska ledare.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to investigate which of the values of spiritual leadership emerges in the leadership of leaders in Sweden, and if there is an indication of spiritual leadership in their leadership. The theoretical framework is based on the importance of leadership in quality management, leadership values and spiritual leadership. The scientific approach is hermeneutic, inductive and the data collection method is a mixed method consisting of both questionnaire and interviews. The resultshows that all values based on spiritual leadership are used by the leaders and are also experienced by the employees. However, there is a discrepancy between the leaders and the employees' views on which ones are the most and least common. There is also a discrepancy around the extent to which values are perceived to occur in leadership. The conclusion is that there are tendencies to some indication of spiritual leadership due to that all values of spiritual leadership are experienced in the conduct of the leader, both from the leaders and the employees perspective. However, more in-depth research is required to fully determine the extent to which a spiritual leadership is used by Swedish leaders.
