Our leadership curriculum focuses on exploring the business case for inclusion, identifying the competencies needed to become an inclusive leader and building awareness of what is take to create an inclusive organizational culture.
Becoming an Inclusive Leader™
A confluence of factors, including globalization, diverse demographics, new technologies (“web voice”), and Gen Y entering the workforce, has created an environment where leadership style and skills must quickly evolve. Employees have an increasing desire and need to participate, be heard, and contribute to the overall business. This has created an inversion of power within the workplace and business leaders need to swiftly adapt to this heightened level of democratization to accommodate this new corporate dynamic and leverage for improved business results.
Becoming an Inclusive Leader serves as a guidepost for business leaders to learn why a different kind of leadership is now required to succeed, define the traits and behaviors of an inclusive leader and finally provide tactics and tools to help them become effective leaders.
Learning & Leading
This 2-hour session is a high-level overview of the business case for inclusion. The link between inclusion and employee engagement, productivity, innovation, retention, and reaching growth markets will be explored. Inclusive leadership behaviors and the importance of driving inclusion from the top will also be discussed. This is a critical component for organizations utilizing our core curriculum throughout the organization.
Who are you listening to? If it's just the senior leaders, you're missing out. Are you hearing the voices of Gen Y? Of women? Of people of color? Of new employees? If you're not, it really doesn't matter how much they "lean in" does it? Leaning in doesn't accomplish anything if the organization doesn't also “listen in.” This session will explore how to create a "listen in" organizational culture.
