Abstract
The purpose of this essay is to develop knowledge and comprehension of working leaders’ experience, and content of leadership on two different levels in two different organizations, in relation to their leader levels.
The leaders in human service organizations are, like everything else, today influenced by the new trends of modern time.

The purpose of this essay is to develop knowledge and comprehension of working leaders’ experience, and content of leadership on two different levels in two different organizations, in relation to their leader levels.
The leaders in human service organizations are, like everything else, today influenced by the new trends of modern time. I find the experience, that the leaders have themselves very interesting, especially as it is seen by the leaders on two different levels - the head of a civil service department and the chief of a unit. My intention is to compare those to each other, to see the similarities and differences between them, and to see the different ideas and opinions they have. The head of a civil service department works with comprehensive issues, such as staff, economic and administration issues, which can be seen as strategic issues. The chief of a unit works with the same issues, but since it is more detailed and closer to the job which is carried out; it can be regarded more operational.
The study is based on seven qualitative interviews with five chiefs of units and two heads of civil service departments. The analyses are based on different leadership perspectives and theories, such as human resources and structure theories, theory of leader’s behavior, and sociological perspectives. My conclusion is that the experience of leadership is different on the different levels, but also on the same level, depending on the individuals. (Less)
