Abstract [sv]

Autentiskt ledarskap representerar ett nytt område inom ledarskapsforskning och fokuserar på ett äkta och genuint ledarskap som återspeglar ledarens sanna jag. Samtidigt finns tvetydigheter om det går att vara sann mot sig själv eller om organisatoriska komplexiteter försvårar ens möjligheter. Efter Migrationsverkets implementation av lean har autentiskt ledarskap lyfts fram som ett framgångsrikt ledarskap för ett lyckat arbete med lean. Syftet med studien var därför att studera upplevelser av det autentiska ledarskapet i en organisation som säger sig tillämpa lean. Studien hade en kvalitativ forskningsdesign vilket innefattade sex semistrukturerade intervjuer med ledare på Migrationsverket. Resultatet visade på att autentiskt ledarskap förklaras som äkta genom självreflektion och relationer. Studien visar också att organisationen har en betydande roll för ledarnas möjlighet att vara autentiska eller inte. Med denna studie vill vi uppmärksamma det autentiska ledarskapet och vad det kan bidra med, men också lyfta organisationens innebörd för det.

Abstract [en]

Authentic leadership represents one of the newest areas of leadership research and focuses on a true and genuine leadership that reflects the true self. There are ambiguities whether it is possible to be true towards oneself or if organizational complexities affect its possibilities. Authentic leadership has been pointed out as the successful leadership approach within lean at Sweden Migrant Board. The aim was therefore to capture experiences of the authentic leadership within an organization that claims to apply lean. The study had a qualitative research design which included six semi-structured interviews with leaders at the Swedish Migration Board. The result showed that authentic leadership was declared genuine through self- reflection and relationships. The study also shows that the organization has a significant role for leaders' ability to be authentic or not. With this study, we want to pay attention to authentic leadership and what it can contribute. We also want to lift the organization's meaning for authentic leadership.
