Emotional intelligence. How well do you perceive emotions, reason with emotions, understand emotions and manage emotions?
Futurecasting. How adept are you at accurately predicting the future and its potential impact on your business?
Humility. Are you able to admit that you're wrong?
Cultural agility. How well do you interact with people from other cultures, within and outside of the U.S.?

How are you doing? As we near the end of 2017, there probably couldn’t be a better focus than to work to hone your inclusive leadership skills. Whether interacting with colleagues, customers, superiors, friends, relatives or others, being inclusive matters!
