UC Values – opportunity to participate in deciding our way forward

Kia ora  koutou

A desire for organisational values for UC came through strongly in the focus groups and other feedback mechanisms in the Strategy development process.

I am looking for volunteers to form a pan-UC working group to establish how we go about developing and implementing a set of meaningful UC Values.

Your likely initial commitment would be:

  • A two-hour workshop on the afternoon of August 28
  • Two additional one hour follow up meetings.

Then it will depend on what we as a group decide.

I will pick about 20 names from those who put their hand up – the group will need to be a good representation of staff. If you miss out on this initial group there will be plenty of opportunities to participate further and your enthusiasm to support this mahi will greatly appreciated.

Please email me by  07 August.  Thank you.  Kia pai tō koutou rā .

Who is this for? All UC Staff!
People at all stages in their leadership journey that want to learn more about the four skill sets of courage: defining leadership and how to navigate vulnerability; leading with values; building trust; rising from setbacks. 

Link to Organisational Culture:
Part of being constructive is about being courageous and having courageous conversations. If we can build capability around how to be courageous and provide an environment where this is encouraged then it will help shift us closer to our ideal organisational culture.

Courageous leadership has never been more vital than it is now
In this session, Kaila will draw on her training with the Dare to Lead™ curriculum, as well as her own extensive leadership experience, to share evidence-based leadership skills most relevant to the challenges posed by our current context.

This experience is for you if:

  • You are wondering what leadership looks like when our environment is uncertain
  • You want to know the key attributes of leaders who successfully deal with significant challenges
  • You are tasked with keeping people focused and moving forward even if you don’t know what direction to go in
  • You want to understand what it means to be a courageous leader in the face of sudden and dramatic disruption
  • You need your team and your organisation to be braver and more resilient than ever before
