Aberdeen City Council Capability Framework

Level 1

To act effectively as one team each of us needs to:

  • Work collaboratively with colleagues, other teams, across the council and with partners
  • Support each other’s health, safety and wellbeing
  • Look for opportunities to share and make best use of all our assets, resources and data

BEHAVIOURS

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

  • We are open, honest and transparent
  • We find ways to work together rather than reasons not to
  • We pull our weight – we rely on each other and can be relied on
  • We look carefully at what already exists – we don’t ‘reinvent the wheel’
  • Everyone belongs – we create a good team spirit – no-one’s left behind – we include everyone
  • If we see an opportunity to help someone, we do so

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

  • Lack of communication – not passing information on
  • Creating division through hierarchy, cliques and silos
  • Poor collaborative work between teams
  • Passing the buck or playing the blame game
  • Ignoring each other’s needs, safety and wellbeing
