INCLUSIVE LEADERSHIP : the Coach Approach
Winter 2019 - Calgary
BE the Inclusive Leader that our changing world needs
Many organizations are committed to diversity – we know that there is value in difference.
However, there is a big gap between building diversity and the inclusive culture necessary to draw out & utilize the unique talents within diverse teams in order to yield powerful results. And, at the base of it all sits a critical need for Inclusive Leadership.
Inclusive leaders are those who:
- embrace the diverse identities and rich experiences of all people
- engage & respect the whole person
- empower their people to perform to their full potential
- listen deeply – for both clarity and understanding
- recognize that a diverse team is greater than the sum of its parts
- create the foundation for an inclusive organizational culture that balances peoples need for individuality and belonging
- believe in a coach-approach to their leadership
Using a unique coach-approach framework, this 4-day program will support you in discovering the Inclusive Leader within, while building the necessary skills to work with your team(s) to build an inclusive culture that yields results.
Ideal for Senior and Mid/Senior-level leaders from across sectors who are passionate about a more inclusive world and who are determined to lead the path, this program is for you if you…
- recognize the need for your leadership to be nimble and responsive to the diverse needs of each individual on your team, but are not sure how to do that
- are overwhelmed by the balance of being the leader you want to be and juggling to keep all the balls in the air
- looking to increase collaboration and innovation
- want to motivate an intrinsic drive within your team through inclusion, inspiration, and engagement
- desire to lead your organization in a way that creates huge impact and affects positive change
