Transform Your Organization With Inclusive Leadership
Developing an organizational culture where every employee feels welcome and thrives professionally starts with inclusive leadership. Inclusive leaders work to address their own biases, identify bias in others, seek out new perspectives, and model curiosity and empathy for their colleagues.
True inclusivity goes beyond meeting a diversity-hiring quota or providing casual support for building diversity, equity, and inclusion programs. To create a thriving workplace that attracts and retains top performers, leaders must commit to growing inclusivity over time, connecting people who bring different experiences and viewpoints, and owning their mistakes and biases with humility.
Regardless of their experience, every leader has room to grow when it comes to inclusivity. FranklinCovey’s principle-based content, expert consultants, and innovative technology will equip your leaders with the mindset they need to personally model inclusivity and create an inclusive culture.
