Insight #1

You’ve got to set the standards yourself.

Insight #2

Use the knowledge of the past leadership team.

Campus Challenge

Write down and share your own standards

Set norms for your own behaviour and make them available to your team. For example:

I commit to provide each team member with two-paragraphs of written feedback after the first month of the calendar year. Then? Ask for feedback from your team. You’ll know exactly how they feel.


I commit to sharing what I am working on, in an open, accessible, online format with a summary each week for the whole team to view and pose questions about. Set the strategy and you’ll be surprised how many creative tactics/ideas come from your wider team.
