Venue: Taunton Rugby Club
The Inclusive Leadership Masterclass is a one day workshop for managers and leaders with an interest in exploring and understanding inclusive leadership and to build inclusive leadership principles into their practice.
It is designed to help leaders understand how to build inclusive cultures, where people have a sense of belonging, shared purpose, and value; and a place where people are more open, collegial, trusting, compassionate and collaborative.
This interactive course includes an opportunity to explore inclusive leadership at a different level. For example role modelling inclusive leadership (e.g. listening, valuing, trusting, compassion); inclusive engagement with teams and colleagues; and how to address inequality and unfairness within their own practices, the practices of other and the system.
Open to anyone in an operational or strategic management or leadership role who wants to develop their inclusive leadership practices
By the end of the one day workshop participants will:
- Be familiar with the benefits of inclusive leadership, and ways that inclusive leadership can be incorporated into operational and strategic leadership practices
- Be aware of different models of inclusive practice including compassionate inclusion, and have begun exploring ways to integrate these ideas into everyday practice
- Understand how different forms of discrimination and prejudice manifest themselves in the workplace (e.g. microaggressions, ‘othering’, unconscious bias, etc)
- Have explored ways to address forms of discrimination and prejudice including having ‘difficult’ conversations
- Be aware of the self-care needs of being an inclusive leader (e.g. self-compassion) and the mindset and skills needed to sustain inclusive leadership (e.g. compassion-focused)
- Have a personal ongoing plan
