Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Att undersöka vad som utmärker ledarskap i ekonomiska kriser, till följd av den idag aktuella finanskrisen.

Genomförande: Empirin har insamlats med hjälp av den kvalitativa metoden. Studien innefattar djupintervjuer med semistrukturerade frågor och tio respondenter från två olika företag inom banksektorn. Utifrån empirin har författarna försökt att dra paralleller mellan ledarnas beteenden och de teorier som omfattar olika ledarstilar.

Slutsatser: Utifrån analysen av empirin framgick det att ledarbeteenden i ekonomiska kriser skiljer sig. Dock kan orsaken till det vara företagens olika förutsättningar och struktur innan den ekonomiska krisen. Beteenden som tydlighet, tillgänglighet, delaktighet, samhörighet och minskat handlingsutrymme blev mer utmärkande. Empirin kunde härledas till angivna ledarstilar i teorin. Den transformativa ledarstilen som är en förändringsledarstil var den som överensstämde bäst med empirin. Dock är det missvisande då den stilen används vid organisationsförändringar vilket studien inte innefattas av. Vidare anses coachande och deltagande/understödjande i situationsanpassat ledarskap och stödjande och deltagande inom path-goal och förekomma som ledarskapsstilar under ekonomiska kriser. Dessa fyra stilar innefattar flexibilitet som är av stor vikt i sådana situationer.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: To examine the characteristics of leadership in economic crises as consequence of recent financial crisis.

Research Method: Information was collected using the qualitative method. The study includes interviews with semi-structured questions and ten respondents from two different companies in the banking sector. Based on the information the authors have attempted to draw parallels between the leader’s behaviour and theories involving different leadership styles.

Conclusions: On the basis of the analysis of the empiric showed that the leadership behaviour in economic crises is changing. However, the reason can be carried out of different conditions and structure before the economic crisis. Behaviours that clarity, access, participation, solidarity and decreased scope for action became more significant. The empiric could be derived to stated leader styles in the theory. The transformative leadership that is one leader style who is used in innovation was agreed best with the empiric. However, it is misleading then that style is used at organizational changes which the study not involves. Furthermore, selling/coaching and participations/supporting in situational leadership and supportive leadership and participative leadership in path-goal are occurring as typical leader styles during economic crises. These four styles include flexibility that is of big weight in such situations.
