Most universities and research organisations have leadership frameworks. A leadership framework describes the skills and behaviours that are generally regarded as important in that organisation.
This leadership framework (PDF) shares the skills and behaviours that many colleagues across Oxford say are of value here.
How can I use the leadership framework?
- Try a self assessment exercise and work out what you believe you do well and one thing you think you could improve
- Ask a critical friend or colleague for their views to aid objectivity
- Maybe ask for a 360 review
If I want to develop as a leader or manager, what opportunities are there for me?
