Inclusive Leadership: Working with Equality and Diversity
As a leader you are responsible for generating trust, building authentic relationships and effective teams. It is vital that you lead by example and inspire excellence in others.
This course will help you to develop and apply your skills as an inclusive leader. You will learn more about working with equality and diversity to include all types of people to confidently engage with you as a leader.
Leadership is about influencing others through personal attributes and behaviours, underpinned by emotional intelligence, to achieve prescribed outcomes.
Inclusive Leadership is about treating people and groups fairly based on their unique characteristics, rather than acting on biases derived from stereotypes.
It is also about personalising individuals, understanding and valuing the uniqueness and differences of others while at the same time including them as members of the organisation, networks and work groups.
Inclusive Leadership is about utilising the thinking of diverse groups for smarter ideas, solutions and decision making. Inclusive leadership has the potential to provide different approaches and ways of working that move the organisation forward.
Equality and Diversity refers to the fair treatment and respect of all individuals, no matter their personal circumstances. Knowledge of equality and diversity helps you and your team to operate appropriately within an equal and diverse workforce. The course analyses how you behave at work, and how it may affect those around you. It addresses unacceptable behaviour, such as stereotyping and discrimination as well as how to deal with inappropriate or offensive behaviour.
This course will help you to develop and apply your skills as an inclusive leader. You will learn more about equality and diversity to grow your team and your organisation, enhance their performance and improve your personal satisfaction.
