Principles and Questions

The principles of leadership that underpin Leaders for Leeds.

  1. Leaders know that assets can be found – you have to look with your eyes open
  2. Leaders connect – they seek and find others to enable them to ‘open doors’ to make a difference, they know you can only do it together.
  3. Leaders learn – they don’t fear failure, its part of being successful.
  4. Leaders look for assets not deficits – they support not disable.
  5. Leaders take action – they implement ideas into tangible results
  6. Leaders pay it forward – they have the attitude of ‘growing the pie’
