  • Model

Leaders are to ‘walk the talk’ when it comes to values. Organisational values need to be exemplified and communicated by the leadership, so that the team knows what is required and can see these values modelled by the leaders, communicating trust.

  • Inspire

Every person desires to pursue something greater than the present. Leaders are in a position to inspire the team to a common vision, with the gifts, abilities and purpose of individuals in mind. To communicate this vision with enthusiasm and clarity becomes inspirational.

  • Challenge

It is crucial for the future that leaders are willing to challenge the way things are done and allow team members the opportunity to find better and more efficient ways of processing. This includes feedback and encouragement of autonomy and responsibility.

  • Enable

It requires a like mindedness in a team to operate successfully. People have abilities that need to be used and sharpened.
Work is the ideal place to enable individuals to exercise and strengthen what is innate.

  • Encourage

When individuals make a difference to the organisation, this needs to be recognised creatively. Leaders will need to be personally involved in celebrating the successes of their team members. Recognise people, names, dreams and achievements.
