Leadership Principles BOKU
This page is available under these URLs:
As a leader at BOKU I act as a role model in every way: expertise-wise, ethically as well as professionally. I do as I say and am a model of reflective discernment. In this sense, I am able to accept and give positive as well as negative feedback.
I actively engage in decisionmaking and bear the consequences.As a leader I encourage my team members to take on responsibility and I foster a culture tolerating failure where learning from mistakes and developing creative and proactive skills are standard.
In my area I make sure that goals are set thoughtfully: in accordance with BOKU strategies and aware of the various competing fields and interests. I understand that room for innovation is equally important as is efficiency and I allow for flexibility where possible and clarify limits where needed.
As a leader I make sure decisions are made and communicated in a comprehensible and reasonable fashion and, whenever possible, are made together with those affected. I take care to provide regular and comprehensive information flow on all levels.
I trust that both staff and leaders alike: do their best, treat each other with respect and follow the rules of working together successfully. I actively foster an environment of mutual trust and respect by providing orientation, by fulfilling agreements and by delegating tasks.
