The purpose of this Master’s thesis has been to explore the role of formal leaders in contributing to and sustaining desired organizational culture. A desired culture is a culture with shared beliefs and values established by leaders and then communicated and reinforced through various methods, ultimately shaping the organizational members perceptions, behaviours and understanding. A desired culture will help to create a common identity and a sense of belonging to the organization which is important for the organization to function as a group and to reach its common goals. Often there is a lack of leadership commitment when contributing to desired organizational culture and the research reported on explores elements of importance for formal leaders contributing to and sustaining desired organizational culture.
