Abstract (Swedish)
Syftet med studien var att undersöka ledarpersonlighetsdrag och ledarskapsbeteende som efterfrågats hos chefer i 105 jobbannonser som ingått i studien.

Enligt resultatet av denna studie värdesätter de tre utvalda sektorer, ekonomi, försäljning och HR främst en ledare som är relationsinriktade, vilket innebär att en ledare ska kunna leda, få folket med sig samt motivera sina medarbetare på ett positivt och inspirerande sätt. Den mest framträdande ledarpersonlighetsdrag var från personlighetsdimensionen, samvetsgrannhet. Det omfattar egenskaper som att vara målmedveten, organiserad, följa regler och normer, fördröja tillfredsställelse, stark tolerans, och självdisciplin. (Less)
Abstract
