Leadership Values

This module gives you the tools to distinguish between what is right and what is expedient in any situation.

  Enroll in Course

The Care and Growth model argues that the core criterion for success as a leader is intent or motive - that leaders are judged not so much by what they do but "why" they do it. What this means is that in any command situation a leader's actions can be driven either by the leader's needs or values. A leader who is values rather than needs driven demonstrates this by acting for reasons greater than self-interest; by doing what is correct rather than what is expedient in any command situation.
Care and Growth Applied – Leadership Values:
In this Module leaders determine the leadership values which are operative in typical command situations and what acting in accordance with these values means practically. They assess the degree to which they are currently acting in accordance with the values and what they need to do to act consistently with the values in their day-to-day leadership practices.

At the end of this module you will be able to:

  • List the nine key values that are operative in a leadership context.
  • Understand what acting consistently with these values actually means.
  • Gain insight into the degree to which your own behaviour is consistent with these values.
  • Describe what you will need to do in order to address discrepancies between your own behaviour and the requirements of these leadership values.
  • Establish an action plan that would enable you to act consistently with these values over time.
