This essay aims to create an understanding of how leadership can be arranged in a company that embraces new technology and telework, and how it can be experienced from the employees' perspective. In order to make it possible to investigate this purpose are three questions formed; ”How is the leadership perceived?”, ”How does telework into motivation?” and ”How does telework into communication?”. A presentation of previous research is given, focusing mainly within different types of leadership, distance, and telework. Based on this, three interviews was made in which respondents’ experience of telework was in focus. The material was then analyzed on the basis of previous research, and through practices around situational leadership, needs, the important of physical communication and distance learning. The results showed that the office and the physical contact with both colleagues and the boss is important for the employees' personal development but also for the personal value. It also showed the importance of a functioning mix of situational, goal-oriented and relationship-oriented leadership.
