Sammanfattning: Today organizations need different strategies and models that can help them to lead and being led to success. Throughout the years there have been discussions about what leadership should be enforced within organizations to increase efficiency. People have different views about what an efficient leadership should look like and who it should be conducted by. Perceptions about who should lead has contributed to that men gained support in achieving leader positions, but has on the other hand led to difficulties for women to reach leader positions. Today it can be perceived strange and unfamiliar for both men and women to see a woman in a leading position. This study takes a qualitative approach. We have interviewed eight leaders in the security business and have thereby been able to apprehend which abilities, practice and style of leadership the study participants are applying in their leading. The analysis of the interviews has shown both similarities and differences in between the male and the female participants. We can also conclude that women face greater resistance in their leadership, while men don’t experience the resistance, which aggravates women to climb higher in leading positions.
