Aberdeen City Council Capability Framework

Level 4

To do this effectively each of us needs to: 

  • Understand the importance of distributed leadership – recognising we can all be leaders wherever we are in the organisation
  • Take responsibility and hold ourselves and others to account for what we’ve said we’ll do
  • Manage risk
  • Make sure we comply with legislation and procedures

BEHAVIOURS

What this looks like when we're at our best ...

  • We look at the evidence – then focus on making things better
  • We encourage new thinking and build on each other’s ideas
  • Every interaction counts – we leave things better than we found them
  • We embrace the new – we are creative and find ways to make things better
  • We are positive and ‘can-do’
  • We are the organisation – we promote the good things we do

What this looks like when we're at our worst...

  • Not willing to do things differently or move with the times
  • Ignoring issues
  • Being careless with council resources
  • Having a negative attitude
  • Dumping work on others
  • Receiving and accepting poor standards of work
  • Talking the organisation down
