Research suggests that increasing the diversity of leadership teams promotes more innovation and improved business results and performance. For many, the toughest leadership and client-delivery test is now looming: how to maintain a culture of collaboration, innovation and teamwork in an environment where economies are still reeling, and work practices are being reshaped. In these uncertain times, where individuals and businesses are being challenged to adapt to current conditions, leading and guiding others inclusively is more important than ever.
Organisations and leaders need to change how they think about diversity. A new approach is required. Only those companies that transform continuously will remain competitive and stay ahead. So, the ability to adapt is the single most important skill. That starts with people. Successful transformation depends crucially on whether leaders have the right mindset and skills. The more diverse the workforce, the greater the need to be able to lead inclusively.
