Building, Creating and Sustaining an Inclusive Environment

Inclusion and diversity is not a project or initiative with a clearly defined start and end date because programs and initiatives tend to dissipate when the drivers of the programs go away. Inclusion and diversity must become your way of doing business. Everyone has to be all in, in helping do this work and embrace all dimensions of diversity to get the best business outcomes. It needs to be built into the fabric of your organization – informing how you hire, how your staff, build teams, compensate, call clients, develop new products and solutions and more.

Taking on your blind spots to

In today’s environment, it’s extremely difficult to be a true leader without cultural dexterity, emotional intelligence, and being comfortable with being uncomfortable. A true leader must be able to resonate and connect with everyone to build a diverse and inclusive working environment.

An authentic leader needs to be morally grounded, transparent and responsive to the needs of their teams. This equates to the notion that it’s more important to be kind than being right where management speaks with a special heart that listens. Perfect people aren’t real, and real people aren’t perfect, and being an authentic leader is about being real. It starts with the fundamental belief and understanding that as a leader you are responsible for creating an environment that allows anyone to be open, vulnerable and their “full selves” and believe that you won’t judge them. But more importantly – that you got their back.

Learning Objectives:

1. Shifting from your framework and mindset and think from a broader perspective

2. Level up your leadership game
