Our Approach

Practical Inclusive Leadership

Suitable for senior executives and people managers, our inclusive leadership training helps leaders to appreciate the solid business case for a more collaborative and inclusive style of leadership. As a leader you can have a significant impact on the culture of inclusion and belonging within your organisation. This training tackles the often-elusive topic of inclusion and puts it into practical, everyday actions that you can take to help your team feel valued and able to perform to their potential.

  • Leaders explore ‘what’s it like to be on the other side of you?’ through group activities and guided discussion
  • Case Studies and Best Practice from across industry shared, identifying traits of an inclusive leader
  • Small changes, big impact to build inclusion via delegates’ communication style / recruitment practices / how meetings are run / mentoring / sponsorship / innovation / customer & supplier interaction
