Description

Leading inclusive teams - this is a Velocity event

Description

Although often mentioned in the same breath, diversity and inclusion are two quite separate things. Diversity relates to the traits, characteristics and qualities which make every one of us unique. Inclusion is about harnessing that diversity; creating a working culture which embraces individual differences.
Team leaders have an important part to play in creating an inclusive workplace culture where no one feels marginalised for being different. Where an inclusive culture does exist, team members are likely to feel more valued and will be more productive as a result. This topic will demonstrate how an inclusive team is one which feels safe to work in, can cope with creative conflict and tolerates challenges to the status quo.

Learning activities

This topic is centred on an all-day workshop, during which you’ll learn how to create a safe environment where team diversity becomes a performance advantage. You’ll be introduced to skills and techniques for encouraging the development of an inclusive culture and improving the working experience within your team.
Having determined what a strong, inclusive leader looks like, you’ll also consider the obstacles which may prevent you from being such a leader. Two post-workshop tasks follow, including one in which you’ll evaluate how your team communicates with each other and how this could be used to demonstrate inclusive priorities.
The estimated learning time is 7 hours 30 minutes.
Note: Some of the learning activities in this topic use digital media, for which you will need specific computing requirements. For more information, please refer to the ‘Terms and Conditions’ tab on the next page and read the technical specification before you purchase.

Learning outcomes

After completing this topic, you will:
  • understand the link between inclusion and improved team performance
  • be able to challenge non-inclusive attitudes and behaviours in the workplace
  • become a role model yourself for inclusivity, championing honesty, integrity and authenticity in your behaviour and relationships
