Den situationsanpassade ledarskapsmodellen som verktyg i lärarskapet
In the 1960’s, Paul Hersey and Ken Blanchard developed a theory called Situational Leadership. Situational Leadership is a model where the leader analyses the needs of the situation and the needs of the people to be led. After analysing the situation, decision is made on what leadership style to adopt. The Situational Leadership model was developed in a company environment. This study examines whether the model can be applied in a classroom situation. Data was collected from video recorded observations of three different teachers’ teaching. All observations were transcribed and an analysis schedule based on the Situational Leadership model was used to code the transcriptions. From these results conclusions on the teachers´ different leadership styles were made. Conclusions are that the observed teachers all adapted their leadership to the specific classroom situation. However, the outcome depended on how successful they were in analysing their pupils’ needs.
