Abstract [en]

In this paper, leadership in a professional and complex organization is explored via a leadership model. The Swedish Health Care System is used as the context for the suggested Leadership profile model. The Leadership profile model contains eight leadership styles that characterize different aspects of leadership. A leadership profile dominated by the leadership styles the Captain, the Strategic leader and the Team Builder characterizes leadership in the studied organizations. The result is different in comparison with results from earlier studies in private organizations. The results also indicate uniformity in leadership in the health care in Sweden with small variations between individual leaders. The leadership profile is similar for different working places, leadership levels and gender. The subordinates' assessment of their leaders indicates the same leadership profile shape, however, with a significant difference in magnitude. A leadership dominated by the leadership styles of The Captain, The Strategic Leader and the Team Builder, indicates an effective leadership.
