Inclusive Leadership Training

Inclusive leadership training develops leadership capabilities for building a climate where employees with diverse backgrounds and experience are able and willing to bring their whole selves to work and contribute fully to work practices and decision-making.


Inclusive leadership training assists leaders in understanding their implicit assumptions and preferences. It also seeks to improve their motivation and ability to empower diverse talent and integrate differences into work practices and decision-making.



Inclusive leadership training has three main objectives:


Engage leaders in cultural change


Strengthen leadership capability for fostering inclusive workplaces where diverse talent is able and willing to contribute fully to work practices and decision-making


Embed learnings through action learning and accountability

Consistent with research on adult learning, we believe that the best learning outcomes result when participants engage holistically with program content. All Culture Plus Consulting learning and development programs incorporate experiential learning techniques, including opportunities to reflect on and apply learnings to the real-life challenges facing participants.

Optimal learning outcomes are achieved in groups of 8-15 participants; however, larger groups can be accommodated.
