Sammanfattning: The subject of the study arose from the researchers' own interest in leadership but also from the researchers own experiences from the difficulty of obtaining the first management position. A catch 22 is discussed where the significance is that it takes experience to obtain a managerial position, but that the experience cannot be obtained without that position. The purpose was thus: "The purpose of this study is to create an understanding of the common aspects that enable an individual's path to their first managerial position". The problem of getting there is discussed and when the study is narrowed down to only study women, various obstacles that might arise for them, are also mentioned. As a theoretical basis, a career development model is used which contains six different parts, but which was adapted to contain only five and these are the following; demographic data, early socialization, personality, work situation and home situation. In the study, the researchers have had an interpretive approach and have used a qualitative method with unstructured interviews as an approach. The selection for the respondents in the interviews consisted of five female managers who have had their managerial position for a maximum of five years. The empirical collection has been structured according to the five themes that are the theoretical basis and each respondent has received a separate statement. The chapter has been strengthened with quotes and is concluded with a table that summarizes the information. In the analysis, in order to lead to a conclusion, the theoretical basis has been set against the empirical collected material. From there, common aspects of the respondents have been picked out. The conclusion is that there are common aspects that affect whether an individual gets a managerial position. These are the following; to have supportive parents, support from home, support from their boss and to possess a personality of will, self-confidence and drive.
