Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för pedagogik, didaktik och utbildningsstudier

Sammanfattning: The Covid-19 crisis has affected society in different ways. Something that is apparent is to the extent that it has shaken societal structures and put them on the test. Hospital care is certainly no exception. In this study, leaders from Karolinska University hospital are investigated from a perspective in how their leaders' leadership skills have been affected during the Covid-19 pandemic. This is done through a focus group interview with a team that have acted as leadership consultants during the pandemic for these leaders. The purpose of this study is tosee how the development of the leaders' leadership skills have looked in such a crisis that Covid-19 has been in Karolinska University hospital. The study has shown that the consultants have supported the hospital in constructing new routines and offering new tools to handle the crisis. This in spite of clear challenges where the consultant team have worked through digital platforms with an unclear starting point in regards to what they can accomplish within the organization. Through an overview of their work since the pandemic started as well as a reflection regarding what has turned out to be key strategies as well as successes and hardships an insight into their work has been formed. This insight indicates that compassion, communication, presence and visibility have been key skills for leaders to possess during the crisis at Karolinska hospital. This can be compared to a transformational leadership style which will be described further in this essay, and this study supports earlier research meaning that this leadership style is highly useful for leaders to possess when organisations or other groups they lead are in a crisis.
