Abstract [en]

Aim: To study whether the number of subordinates plays a role in first-line managers' and subordinates' ratings of empowerment, stress symptoms, and leadership-management performance. The aim was also to study relationships between managers' empowerment and stress symptoms and leadership-management performance. Methods: A longitudinal and correlational design was used. All first-line managers (n = 98) and their subordinates (n = 2085) working in the care of older adults in five municipalities were approached. Results: With fewer (<= 30) subordinates per manager, there were higher ratings of structural empowerment among managers and subordinates and lower stress symptoms among subordinates, than with >= 31 subordinates. Furthermore, structural empowerment was related to the managers' stress symptoms and leadership management performance, mediated through psychological empowerment Moreover, structural empowerment can control/adjust for large numbers of subordinates in relation to stress symptoms. Conclusion: The higher FLMs rated their access to empowerment, the lower stress symptoms and higher leadership-management performance they rated over time.
