Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to find out whether there are behavioural differences between two groups of formal leaders—managers and vicars. The behaviour dimensions investigated are leadership style (task, relationship, and change orientation), decision-making style (the functions of sensing, intuition, thinking, and feeling), and motivation profile (achievement, affiliation, and power motivation). It is hypothesised that vicars and managers show considerable differences in leadership behaviour. An investigation based on data from managers and vicars in Sweden reveals significant differences in behaviour between these groups. Six out of seven tests yield significant differences in leadership behaviour. Possible explanations for the differences are explored. The leadership variables applied appear to be equally relevant for describing the behaviour of managers and vicars.
