We recognise that in our business it is our leaders that have the most impact on the culture of the organisation. By ensuring we develop and nurture inclusive habits and behaviours in our leaders we can ensure that our people feel that sense of belonging and are able to thrive and perform at their best.

It is an old cliché to say “People don’t leave bad jobs, they leave bad bosses’, and this has never been truer, it happens all of the time. If organisations do not invest in developing their leadership, at all levels, then it is hardly surprising that poor workplace cultures are able to exist.

In this session Joanne Lockwood will explore the key attributes of an Inclusive Leader, and how these skills can bring people together and build a positive workplace culture. When encouraged this can improve a team’s passion and purpose and with it an increased sense of belonging.

She will also look at the effects of Unconscious Biases and Language that leaders need to be aware of in the Recruitment, Development and Retention of their staff. Biases and poor choice of language can cause people to feel excluded, discriminated or feeling that they are being treated unfairly.
