Board level behaviours
The NHS Leadership Model describes nine behaviours which together contribute towards strong and effective NHS leaders. If you are invited to interview, you will also need to demonstrate the range of behaviours required to contribute effectively in this board level role:
- Inspiring shared purpose – create a shared purpose for diverse individuals doing different work, inspiring them to believe in shared values so that they deliver benefits for patients, their families and the community
- Leading with care – understand the underlying emotions that affect their team, and care for team members as individuals, helping them to manage unsettling feelings so they can focus their energy on delivering a great service that results in care for patients and other service users
- Evaluating information – are open and alert to information, investigating what is happening now so that they can think in an informed way about how to develop proposals for improvement
- Connecting our service – understand how things are done in different teams and organisations; they recognise the implications of different structures, goals, values and cultures so that they can make links, share risks and collaborate effectively
- Sharing vision – convey a vivid and attractive picture of what everyone is working towards in a clear, consistent and honest way, so that they inspire hope and help others to see how their work fits in
- Engaging the team – promote teamwork and a feeling of pride by valuing individuals’ contributions and ideas; this creates an atmosphere of staff engagement where desirable behaviour, such as mutual respect, compassionate care and attention to detail, are reinforced by all team members
