Purpose and Leadership

Purposeful leadership is an integral part of the UoL Leadership Excellence Behaviours, whether that be at a strategic, team or individual level. Purposeful leadership ensures we achieve our goals on both a human and task level.

Some useful tips for purposeful leadership from our leaders and managers surgeries were:

  • Start with the ‘why’.
  • Universal Values, Global Change – University of Leeds Strategy 2020-30
  • Instigate reflection time (practice being a reflective practitioner).
  • Utilise new technologies to engage team, eg, Padlet, MS Polls, to ensure all voices are heard.
  • Get to know your individual team members needs and motivators to align to goals.
  • Set Agenda’s to incorporate Calls to Help, Top Tips, Victories, Time for Me.
  • Incorporate behavioural as well as task orientated goals.
