Salutogent ledarskap: en framgångsfaktor för elevers måluppfyllelse
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
All headmasters want to lead teachers so that the students will achieve their own goals as well as the goals of the education. The salutogenic leadership is a way to lead in the right direction. This type of leadership depends on Antonovski’s (2005) theory of Sense of coherence. The theory of Sense of coherence is built on the concepts of comprehensibility, manageability and meaningfulness. The purpose of this study was to investigate if successful schools have a salutogenic leadership and if so what parts of the theory seem to be the most important. In this study three upper secondary schools participated. All three schools have increased the students’ grades from start to finish. All the headmasters, two teachers from each school and a group of students from each school were interviewed. All the teachers at the school also answered a survey developed in this project. The results showed that all the headmasters had a leadership inspired by the salutogenic theory. The most important parts of the leadership seem to be creating a salutogenic environment and thereby create a sense of coherence. The most important issues in the comprehensibility concept seem to be knowledge about the school, about the headmasters’ role and their own role as teachers. In terms of manageability, it seems that the most important issues are the headmasters’ support and the teachers’ influence and participation. Finally, regarding the concept of meaningfulness, it seems that the most important issue is the relations between headmaster and the teacher and between teachers.
