If you subscribe to Ms. Verna Myers quote, “Diversity is being invited to the party; inclusion is being asked to dance,” missing for me from many inclusive organization conversations are the economics of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and Succession Planning.
Individual success in an organization equals career, income and ultimately wealth growth. To an organization it is net-new revenue growth–often generated through new products and services. Neither of these can occur without systemic adoption of the skills that develops inclusive leaders. Using the Inclusion Matrix this podcast explores those five critical skills: IQ, EQ, CQ, Intellectual Humility and Vulnerability. Mastering these skills makes for leaders and managers capable of the needed coaching and development required to advance any individual within their organization.
- Define, learn & explore what each of the skills look like in reality
- Put the skills into practice–what manager/leader as coach looks like
- The courage to step into inclusion–these skills help to navigate uncomfortable conversations
