121 Inclusive Leadership – Developing the Bench
Inclusive leadership is not a destination. It's a journey that requires humility, curiosity and courage. - Thais Compoint
121 Inclusive Leadership – Developing the Bench
Inclusion happens one thought, one moment, one conversation, one interaction, and one person at a time. It takes time, practice, and a conscious intention to ensure the team feels included and all belong. Today’s emphasis on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) is not a trend or a short-lived new look at the workforce and leadership. It is a mandate for the 21st century. However, understanding and shifting our mindset is not enough; we also have to figure out what to DO. How do we create a culture of inclusion and make inclusive decisions? How do we have meaningful interactions with our co-workers and those we supervise and lead? How can we ensure that everyone has an opportunity for growth in our organization? The answers to these questions have to become behaviors to ensure that these actions become habits adopted in the workplace. This course, “Inclusive Leadership” addresses the third leg of our DEI leadership responsibilities…. This course will reinforce the DE mindset and add to leadership information and knowledge, but it will do more: we will focus on developing new tools, new behaviors, things leadership can actually do to create inclusion and equity in a world of individuals and diversity.
