I think recognising leadership is important, because I think leadership translates into our values. And they become lived organisational values. And I think we need leaders and role models to really help illuminate the way.
As an organisation, I think we should recognise more of the little leadership moments, those little acts of leadership, because I believe that leadership is not one big thing. It's made up of a whole lot of little micro moments that really make a difference.
For me, the leadership rewards are really a chance to step back and say, we are making progress. What we do has impact, it really matters to our staff and student community.
So, I think those interpersonal support that managers give is a really great contribution. And we've benefited a lot from us to be offered within the program that he was leading.

There's a strong sense of values and integrity. Leaders should empower others to self-organise, to do their work, to give that extra 110%. And also, foster a sense of belonging. The most effective leaders are those who are in sync with the DNA of the organisation. They live and breathe the values and the passion and the mission of the organisation.
It's really useful to have some very concrete and practical models around us. And for us to develop that understanding amongst ourselves, and then to model it together.
The reason I love nominating people for awards, is because I think when someone is recognised, they feel a wider connection to the greater cause. And I think that gives people a sense of purpose and pride and satisfaction in what they're doing. And I think that's contagious, it's great to see.
