Aberdeen City Council Capability Framework

Level 1

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 face up to things – we learn from mistakes and move on
  • Every day’s a school day – we look for ways to improve, we’re open to feedback to help us develop
  • We step up, take ownership and deliver a great job
  • We’re open about what we’re doing and encourage input from others
  • We make every penny count – we spend public money wisely
  • If we see something that needs changed, we do something to change it
  • We do what we say we’ll do

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

  • That’s not my job
  • Moaning but not doing anything about it
  • Hiding things or sweeping them under the carpet
  • Micro-managing
  • Slopey shoulders
  • Being hypocritical
  • Saying one thing and doing another
