Heads of L&D Roundtable: Inclusive Leadership

Traditional styles of leadership are dead. Inclusive Leadership is the new business norm.  As the world becomes increasing global, so does business talent. With the globalisation of talent the modern workplace becomes increasing diverse and the need for business leaders to develop cultural intelligence and self-awareness become core leadership competencies.

In this interactive roundtable discussion, we will explore a number of critical questions.

What is the role of the leader in creating a culture of inclusion?

What is inclusive leadership and does how it differs from traditional styles of leadership?

How inclusive leaders think and act?

What are the fundamental principles of inclusive leaders?

How can an inclusive leadership approach create a culture of inclusion for all impacting positively, on employee motivation, engagement, team performance and business profit?

The discussion will be supported by a research lead inclusive leadership assessment tool.

It will be led by Dan Robertson from VERCIDA Consulting. Dan is widely regarded as a subject matter expert on workplace diversity & inclusion, unconscious bias and inclusive leadership.
