GCL Training: Inclusive Leaders, Successful Organisations

Management leadership meeting

Inclusive leadership is a crucial aspect of promoting Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace.

Inclusive leaders champion and promote inclusive and supportive work environments, where all employees feel valued, respected, and heard and where individuals, teams and organisations can thrive - rather than survive.

Who should attend?

The course is for anyone managing teams and / or wants to be the best leader they can be.

Course overview

This 3-hour interactive session will look at how leaders can effectively, appropriately, and confidently champion Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (ED&I) in the workplace.

The session will explore:

  • What ED&I is and why it is so important for individual, team, and organisational success.
  • The role and responsibilities of Managers re: ED&I.
  • The traits of inclusive leadership – what it looks like and the positive impact it can have on people, teams and organisations.
  • Managing in the new world – having confidence in championing ED&I in hybrid work environments and across intergenerational / multi-national teams.
  • The importance of inclusive language and behaviour and how to promote and embed this in the workplace.
  • Calling it in and calling it out – understanding the red lines and how to challenge effectively and appropriately in a non-confrontational way.

The session will also provide a high-level overview of the Equality Act 2010 and best practice in relation to inclusive leadership and provide an opportunity to discuss relevant scenarios and how to manage them in an inclusive way.

What our delegates say

'Brilliant training - reminded us all how our behaviour, as Managers, can impact others in so many ways, both positively and negatively. We are all different and have different needs so inclusion should be at the forefront of our management thinking and leadership style.'

'Fantastic afternoon, Nick was amazing and really brought the subject to life. Looking forward to taking the learning back to my region and working with colleagues to build a more inclusive and productive workplace.'

'I feel much more confident in challenging unacceptable behaviour and language, I now have the tools to be a more effective manager too. It is not only about positively recognising differences in teams - but how we can all benefit from those differences.'

'Really built my confidence in an area that I was unsure of and was causing me anxiety as a manager of volunteers. Loved the course, learnt a lot, and found it fun too.'
