Using inspiring ‘best practice’ stories combined with the latest research including:
Suitable for senior executives and people managers, this session helps leaders appreciate the solid business case for a more collaborative and inclusive style of leadership. Leaders explore ‘what’s it like to be on the other side of you?’ Traits of an inclusive leader are shared and used to inform what actions or small changes need to be made in a leadership style that could have a significant impact on inclusion and drive diversity.
