Inclusive Leadership

An inclusive leader approach serves everyone: every individual, the organisation or company itself and the common good.

It is easier to reach goals if you are working together with others who support each another, and who can put their different strengths, competences and skills to use in the right places. The more people feel involved in a professional or decision-making process, the more innovative their work will be and the more motivated they will be.

Different points of view and experiences pave the way for good solutions. This means that ‘diversity’ is a key to our future.

Why is Inclusive Leadership important for you?

The idea of inclusive leadership has an effect on you as an individual. It doesn’t matter whether you run a large company, are involved in a refugee initiative, have started a project with people with impairments or have campaigned for the bus to stop at least five times a day at your local village station.

What does matter is your behaviour and attitude, regardless of where you are currently working or what you are involved in: What are you doing for yourself? What are you doing with and for others? How do you imagine more effective cooperation and a better future would look like? And how do you want to realise this goal and turn it into reality?
