The Capability Gap

By it’s definition, diversity requires a flexible and multifaceted approach to leadership, in order to recognise and truly leverage the unique strengths of different team members. One size does not fit all and leaders must understand how to unite and motivate diverse teams.

Inclusive leadership begins with fostering psychological safety and belonging so everyone feels able to bring their best self to work. When we feel safe to make mistakes and to learn from them, we propose more creative solutions and trust each other to ‘have our backs’.

Defining personal inclusive leadership behaviours is the first step to unlocking the potential of diverse teams for leaders and organisations.

Unforgettable Learning Experiences

Leader’s Shadow

Illuminate blind spots
A deeply reflective exercise, Leader’s Shadow asks participants to assess whether their leadership intentions match their actions across a number of levels. Participants have time to self reflect and work together to share insights into how the combination of these actions result in their leadership shadow – their impact on others.

By asking incisive questions of each other, the participants gain a greater understanding of how to create congruence between their intention and impact.

Moments that Matter

Move the dial on inclusion
Becoming a more inclusive leader relies on leaders proactively making the right choices in the moments that matter, on a daily basis. This exercise helps participants to get granular about when and how they can make these choices.

Knowing their day to day routines, they create specific commitments around key actions they have identified, in order to become a more actively inclusive leader, so they can start to make a difference to those around them.

Talking Heads

Find deeper meaning
Talking Heads involves live story-based character perspectives, based on real-life situations, to be explored in greater depth.

Participants explore a variety of scenarios through these characters’ eyes and have an opportunity to hear their ‘unspoken’ experience. This provides new insight into familiar challenges and provides the opportunity to address these in a different way.
