The evaluation of health-promoting workplaces is believed to form an integralpart of the planning and implementation of interventions. Recent approachesto workplace health promotion include how to organize work, andthe integration of health needs into management and leadership principles.The objective of this paper is to discuss the implementation and evaluationof interventions aimed at developing health-promoting leadership. Thepaper presents results from two case studies, the interventions of whichfocused on developing health-promoting leadership in Swedish municipalities.However, a wider participatory approach was lacking in both cases, andtherefore relevant courses of action for the specific workplaces were onlyidentified and addressed to a limited extent. In order to succeed with similarprogrammes it seems necessary to integrate health-promoting activitiesinto the daily work of managers, and to provide them with opportunities toinfluence environmental conditions of importance. The results show thatsuccessful interventions need to be adapted and integrated into the ongoingactivities and developments of the workplace. This paper will be presented apossible outline of the self-evaluation of health-promoting leadership.
