The inclusive leadership Programme

Are you making the most of your employees voices?

 

We organise fun and interactive workshops, events and lunch n learns. Highly interactive they lead to higher human potential, an inclusive collaborative environment and higher staff engagement. Women and men or women only groups, regardless of their race, religion, age, ability or sexual orientation, are equipped with tools in growth mindset, bias awareness and communication skills to bring their unique ideas and perspectives to the table compellingly. 

Regardless of their gender or race, each person has their own thoughts, feelings and desires. It comes as no surprise, therefore, that a report by the Harvard Business Review, shows diverse groups where employees look and think differently from each other are smarter. The Inclusive Leadership programme help teams to kick stereotypes to the curb in order to increase their mental wellbeing and bring their authentic voices to the table.

HOW WE DO IT

Research shows that we are covering up as much as 60% of who we are while at work. While a separate study found that when individuals are valued and empowered to be their best selves, tangible results can be seen in the bottom line.

Our programmes utilise a 'wholelistic' approach to change as studies also show that everything you think, do, feel and believe impacts your state of mind. 

The transformation

Unplug: To tune out the negative messages and stereotypes that sabotage your self-belief and mental-wellbeing.

Discover: Tools to discover the true you

Unleash: Tools to unleash your authentic voice compellingly
