The Leadership Concept defines what good leadership means in the Danish Refugee Council. We consider good leadership a precondition for our ability to navigate in a continually more complex world, which is necessary to assist people in need. The Leadership Concept is based on Danish Refugee Council’s values and helps us, as an organization, to reach our mission and vision.
The Leadership Concept is based on the principle of “Freedom of action with responsibility”, which is translated into three groups of behaviors. “Freedom of action with responsibility” gives the leader freedom and authority to make decisions within their own area of responsibility, a mandate which is delegated from the manager’s manager.
