The benefit of building diverse teams is well understood, with clear evidence that this can result in increased performance, staff satisfaction, loyalty, and overall organisational capability – but it requires that diverse teams be led inclusively. In an increasingly diverse environment, it is key that leaders can develop organisations where inclusion is embraced, ensuring everyone feels they belong and can perform to the best of their ability.
The focus of this session is for leaders to embrace their discomfort and use it to understand how vulnerability needs to be role-modeled to build trust and psychological safety so their people can experience that sense of belonging. Imperfection equals opportunity, so understanding how to move from good intentions to action is vital, and leaders will be equipped with a personal action plan for inclusive leadership.
Senior managers in positions of leadership seeking to broaden their understanding of inclusive leadership in support of creating highly effective teams and organisations.
