Abstract This report seeks to examine the work with trust-based leadership in Kultur- og Fritidsforvaltningen in Denmark, which was implemented in 2006. At the same time, the paper seeks to describe what the application of trust-based leadership, as well as the challenges that this application has contributed to. This approach is based on the predominant paradigms of public administration: Old Public Administration, New Public Management and New Public Governance, as well as an emphasis on trust-based leadership, which is a part of New Public Governance. Following this, the paper presents an analysis built on the basis of the five management-principles and four leadership-values of Kultur- og Fritidsforvaltningen, with the purpose of discerning whether Kultur- og Fritidsforvaltningen, manages to attain the theoretical ideal required by trust-based leadership, while at the same time analyzing the achieved results. Lastly, this report discusses the possibility of combining trust-based leadership with elements from New Public Management. To discuss this topic, the discussion is structured so as to focus on the relationship between control and trust. To complement this approach, the particular management-issues concerning trust-based leadership is addressed.
