We are delighted to introduce our new 'Inclusive Leadership: Power of Diversity' programme facilitated by Sandra Lee of Training and Learning Solutions Ltd, to encourage all leaders & managers to change the narrative so every individual not only has a seat at the boardroom table, but that every voice is heard.

Research suggests that increasing the diversity of leadership teams leads to more innovation and improved business results and performance. For many, the toughest leadership and client-delivery test is now looming: how to maintain a culture of collaboration, innovation and teamwork in an environment where economies are still reeling and work practices are being reshaped. In these uncertain times, where individuals and businesses are being challenged to adapt to current conditions, leading and guiding others inclusively is more important than ever.

Our work environment is continuously changing, therefore the ability to adapt is the single most important skill. That starts with people. Successful transformation depends crucially on whether leaders have the right mindset and skills. The more diverse the workforce, the greater the need to be able to lead inclusively.

Women in Business is changing the narrative with a new professional development programme - Inclusive Leadership: The Power of Diversity, facilitated by Sandra Lee of Training and Learning Solutions Ltd
 
Increasing the diversity of leadership teams leads to more innovation and improved business performance. We all need to maintain a culture of collaboration, innovation and teamwork as the working world is being reshaped. We need a new approach, and it has to start with you.

The aim of this programme is to share how you build a diverse & inclusive culture in an increasingly globalised workplace - as the more diverse the workforce, the greater the need to be able to lead inclusively. We encourage male and female leaders to take part in this programme - all voices need to be heard at the table when it comes to diversity.
