Leaders and managers are important to the success of any organisation. That’s why the effective induction of managers needs to be a key focus, so they start off on the right step and in the right direction.
Skills for Care has reviewed the Manager Induction Standards (2023) so you can use them to support this process.

When we are motivated by compassion and wisdom, the results of our actions benefit everyone, not just our individual selves or some immediate convenience.
For leadership to be compassionate, it must also be inclusive. Compassion blurs the boundaries between self and other, promoting belonging, trust, understanding, mutual support and, by definition, inclusion (West 2021). This creates an inclusive, psychologically safe environment in which diversity in all forms is valued and team members can contribute creatively and enthusiastically to team performance.
