Effective leadership is an essential attribute in today’s workplace and leaders are increasingly called upon to role model an inclusive style that truly embraces diversity and creates a culture of inclusion. This can present a challenge as leaders seek to navigate what is considered helpful and acceptable in a changing world.
Inclusion and diversity mean different things to different people. Within teams and organisations, leaders need to develop a shared awareness and language amongst their peer group to enable them to talk openly about these topics. They also need practical skills and approaches that will support them to develop a more inclusive personal leadership approach.
What will participants learn?
Our workshop for people leaders is highly engaging and interactive. We quickly get to the heart of some of the terminology and definitions to create clarity. Recognisable examples and scenarios are discussed, and we invite input from the participants to make it real. Practical tips and actions are shared to help your leaders foster a more inclusive leadership approach.
