Abstract [en]

Leadership is important when it comes to well-being and development of organizations. The leader has the opportunity to influence the employees to reach their full potential and thereby develop the entirety of the organization. There are both men and women in leadership positions in the automotive industry, but there is a lack of understanding in how they differ in their leadership. This paper aims to explore how leadership strategies differ between male leaders and female leaders in the automotive industry, by comparing twelve interviews with respondents from two different companies. The study was conducted qualitatively with an inductive research approach. The empirical study together with the reference frame resulted in a model that illustrates how the difference in leaderships are used to motivate and develop the employees. In conclusion the study showed that both male and female leaders’ intent to motivate and personally develop the employees, but they have different approaches achieving it. Male leaders tend to encourage, challenge and promote independence to earn trust while the females tend to use feedback, communication, inclusion and be present in their leadership.

Abstract [sv]

Ledarskap har stor betydelse för trivsel och utveckling på företag. Ledaren har möjlighet att influera medarbetarna att nå sin fulla potential och på så sätt också utveckla företaget som helhet. Både män och kvinnor besitter ledarskapspositioner på företag inom fordonsbranschen, men det saknas förståelse för hur de är olika i sitt ledarskap. Detta arbete syftar till att utforska hur manliga och kvinnliga ledare använder ledarskap, utifrån tolv intervjuer med respondenter från två företag inom fordonsbranschen. Studien är kvalitativt utförd med en induktiv forskningsansats. Insamlad empiri tillsammans med referensram resulterade i en modell som illustrerar hur ledarskap utövas inom branschen. Studien kom fram till slutsatsen att manliga och kvinnliga chefer tenderar att använda sig av olika ledarskapsstilar men båda har som avsikt att motivera och utveckla medarbetarna. Manliga chefer beskrivs som sporrande, då de använder ett ledarskap som erbjuder medarbetarna självständighet, utrymme och utmaning. Kvinnliga chefer karaktäriseras i studien som återkopplade, då de är mer kommunikativa, inkluderande och närvarande i sitt ledarskap.
