Motivating & Inspiring

As a manager, your leadership is required to create a culture where staff can use their professional autonomy and are inspired to be the best. Individuals will look to you for leadership and direction, so you’ll need to have a clear vision and purpose, and the ability to model positive leadership behaviours.

Motivating and inspiring may involve:

  • Recognising, valuing and using individual and collective skills and strengths
  • Working collaboratively with leaders from other organisations to inspire change
  • Creating a culture of learning and continuous improvement, where everyone's contributions are valued
  • Encouraging others to contribute to your organisation's vision.
