Our Ethos

Leadership at all levels. At all stages. Across health and social care in Scotland.

Our Ethos

Relationships and people are at the heart of everything we do. What is the Project Lift Ethos?

 

The  ethos is how we sum up what Project Lift all  about: the how we treat ourselves and each other, the frame of  self, team, system and the belief that people are at the heart of everything we do.

In Health and Social Care we provide services and support for and with people. A strong belief in  leadership at all levels across Health and Care, we value people and our humanity so we can make the most of each other’s potential, our services, and the positive impact we can make in Scotland.

“There may be no greater leadership challenge in 2019 than to help people under pressure to feel valued and for everyone to appreciate the benefits which come from rebuilding strong relationships, bringing out the best in each other and enabling everyone to be more effective in every way.”
