Inclusive leadership is emerging as a critical capability that helps organizations adapt to diverse customers, markets, ideas and talent, according to The Harvard Business Review. According to HBR contributors from Deloitte Australia and the University of New South Wales, what leaders say and do makes up to a 70% difference as to whether an individual reports feeling included — and the more people feel included, the more of a lift they give to organizational performance.
In this on-demand The LX Signature Series webinar — 9 Data-Driven Insights on Developing Inclusive Leaders — Joshua Price, Co-CEO of global DEI consultancy Symmetra, draws upon data collected from almost 3,000 global participants in Symmetra’s 360-degree inclusion assessment, one of the world’s largest inclusive leadership dataset, to present insights into some of the key obstacles to successfully developing inclusive leaders that attract, retain and leverage diverse talent. He also explores:
- What effective inclusive leadership actually looks like
- Trends and themes across global participants
- Common gaps in inclusive leadership performance
- Gender patterns
- And more
The session further examines how conducting individual and team inclusion assessments can act as the catalyst to build lasting new inclusion habits in leaders, and the implications of Symmetra’s findings for how to get maximum ROI from your investment in inclusion capability.
