Checklist: The qualities of your leaders
This activity is based on the qualities and skills that participants in the national Indigenous Governance Awards, the Indigenous Community Governance Research Project and AIGI’s Indigenous Governance of Development Research Project see as being important for strong leaders.
Ask yourself whether you or your leaders have these qualities and skills, and how they can be strengthened and better supported.
These check-ups are intended for self-directed assessment. They can be used by leaders, board directors, or group members who want to evaluate the governance and leadership of their organisation, community or nation. You can do the check-up on your own or as a group and then compare results.
