Many companies are unaware of the economic potential hidden away in their workforce. Underutilization of female talent and undesired losses are key issues in talent development these days.
Many companies are also unaware of the fact that more and more household decisions are made by women; a large untapped market opens up to companies willing to specifically cater for this market segment.
Research has shown that the quality of decision-making can be seriously compromised by a lack of variety in backgrounds and management styles of the decision-makers. The ability to acknowledge differences and utilize them effectively is crucial. This inclusive leadership style leads to innovation and superior business results.
Inclusive leadership is needed to create a more balanced organization, with people from different nationalities, backgrounds, religions, beliefs, gender etc.
The Centre for Inclusive Leadership has developed a state-of-the art model which takes into account the perceived value of differences and the organizational adaptations observed in companies. A thorough process takes a company looking for superior business results from the first phase of creating awareness into the end phase of using differences as a tool for competitive advantage. The Centre for Inclusive Leadership builds on years of experience in management and leadership combined with academic expertise.
The starting point of the work of the Centre for Inclusive Leadership is that diversity is a business issue, directly related to the strategy and results of the company.
