Subject background

The interest in leadership is constantly growing. Thousands of articles and books on the subject are published each year. Leadership is recurrently identified as one of the most important work related factor for improving health. Research within leadership and health has steadily been growing during the last 15 years. The main body of the research has been done in the last couple of years.

Health promoting leadership can be considered as as collection of different perspectives on what leaders can do to increase health in a workplace or an organization. It can concern everything from behaviors directed towards an employee to creating organizational prerequisites for health.

There are a large number of courses available for researchers and practitioners interested in leadership. However, it is rare to find a course that focuses on health and how health can be built and maintained, which is one of the main focuses during this course. The intention is to increase participants’ knowledge of health promoting leadership. This will be done by providing and discussing different perspectives on what health promoting leadership can be, but also by providing and discussing prerequisites necessary to build and maintain health promoting leadership.
