Inclusive Leadership

4 - 15
Full Day / Bite Size

Are your Leaders setting the right tone? Do your employees feel that they belong and have a vital part to play in the success of the organisation? The more people feel included, the more involved and responsible they become.

Inclusive Leadership is emerging as a critical Leadership capability. It may already be modelled through your organisation’s purpose, policies, and practices, but the most important factor in achieving authentic inclusion is the mindset and behaviours of your Leaders.

What your Leaders say and do makes a significant impact on how your employees engage with your organisation. Do they feel valued and that they belong? Do they believe they are treated fairly and respectfully? The more people feel included, the more they speak up, make recommendations, highlight and tackle challenges, go the extra mile, and collaborate. All of which will have a significant impact on driving organisational performance.

We have identified a cluster of six behaviours the Inclusive Leader will model. Through a series of interactive and practical workshops we will explore each behaviour, encouraging your leaders to assess how inclusive their current practice is. We will identify how to amplify the things being done well and we will also ask your  leaders to commit to identifying and exploring those behaviours that might need some improvement.

Who is this suitable for?

Leaders that want to cultivate an inclusive environment that encourages innovation and collaboration.

What we cover

Six Behaviours of Inclusive Leadership

 

Visible commitment: Leaders articulate authentic commitment to diversity, challenge the status quo, hold others accountable, and make diversity and inclusion a personal priority.

 

Humility: They let go of the need to be right; accepting there is more than one way to interpret and respond to the world and that their view is limited. They are modest about their own capabilities, admit mistakes, and create the space for others to contribute.

 

Curiosity about others: They demonstrate an open mindset and deep curiosity about others, listen without judgment, and seek with empathy to understand those around them.

 

Mindfulness: They deliberately reflect on how bias is influencing their interactions and decision-making, acting with a conscious intent to be fair. Working hard to spot flaws in the system and ensure a meritocracy.

 

Purposeful collaboration: They empower others, pay attention to diversity of thinking and psychological safety, and focus on team cohesion.

 

Emotionally Intelligent: They respond to others with empathy and regulate their emotional response in challenging and difficult situations.
