BOLD & Inclusive Leadership – The Launchpad Programme
The Launchpad Programme creates a safe space for first-level leaders to be honest about their challenges, gain insight into the challenges faced by diverse team members and work through solution-focused strategies to dismantle challenges and move teams toward enhanced productivity, innovation and equitable inclusion.
Our programme will support your organisation in developing BOLD leadership in 1st line leaders by helping them successfully and equitably manage a new generation of diverse talent.
Attendees are introduced to the seven pillars of inclusivity, discussing the benefits of adoption, addressing possible tangible/intangible challenges of implementation and sourcing practical solutions they get to practice in a safe environment within the programme.
We create a non-judgmental space that enables us to address uncomfortable topics, work through them to address our biases/blocks/barriers to equitable inclusion, and move to a place of understanding and inclusive intentionality.
Why this programme?
The workforce is becoming increasingly diverse, resulting in those with Line management responsibility needing to adapt to support and develop their workforce.
But how exactly do they adapt?
What aspects of leadership do they need support with?
For those who have been awarded line management responsibility early in their career, providing them with BOLD & Inclusive leadership development provides them with a framework to :
Successfully leading a diverse workforce includes understanding previously overlooked cultural/social nuances. This is not the fault of team leaders because you don’t know what you don’t know, but data tells us that talent from under-represented groups has the highest attrition rate. Now is the time to support team leaders in creating equitable and inclusive cultures within their teams.
Getting the best from your diverse talent is a two-way street. It’s not enough for talent to step up; it also requires managers to understand the cultural barriers to career development. These may not be immediately obvious, especially if you are of a different cultural background or generation to your reports.
Thankfully, once you become aware, these barriers can be removed. This programme provides the insights needed to achieve exactly that. Often, it doesn’t require a radical overhaul of processes, just having the right conversations and taking some simple steps to create an environment where employees feel they belong and can progress. A slight change in approach can be the difference between your organisation having a ‘diversity drain’ and having a flourishing pool of diverse talent.
