Sense of appreciation

Promoting a culture in which your workforce feel appreciated is the second Key Foundational Principle for organisational resilience. This is when:

  • People feel valued and that their individual talents and skills are noticed and appreciated
  • Leaders appreciate the pressures of the work and encourage people to prioritise self-care and a healthy work-life balance
  • Leaders are visible, approachable, genuinely interested in people and trust them to do a good job
  • Leaders listen and engage with practitioners and provide constructive feedback.

Reflective questions:

  • As a leader, are you aware of the tasks and responsibilities of the teams in your organisation? And are individual and team successes communicated and celebrated?
  • Are practitioners supported to maintain a healthy work-life balance?
