The days of command-and-control leadership are long gone; leaders must now focus their energy on building relationships, leading from the middle, and connecting their people with values regardless of their backgrounds and social categorisations. The Developing an Inclusion Learning Mindset Workshop equips attendees with the skills to build more inclusion and belonging into day-to-day practice and as a result increase collaboration, innovation, and overall team effectiveness.
This highly interactive workshop is designed for leaders who wish to gain the intelligence, awareness, skill, and confidence to lead a rapidly evolving, diverse, and often complex workplace. Our focus goes beyond managing bias, to the practical steps towards more inclusion and inclusive participation in teams. We also focus on how inclusion enables diversity, moving attendees away from tokenism and selection for appearance to truly maturing the inclusion outlook, and developing an appetite for the difference.
Attendees will gain a deep understanding of the role of leadership in the current landscape and the opportunities and challenges for leaders to leverage diversity for business growth, workforce development and promoting social inclusion within their organisations.
