Inclusive Leadership

Inclusive leadership and diversity are established success factors in organisations. Research by, among others, McKinsey (Delivering through diversity, 2018) shows that modern, successful leaders have a mixture of masculine and feminine leadership styles at their disposal. This leads to diversity and enables them to reach their organisation targets.

“Inclusive leaders recognise and stimulate this blend in themselves and others.”

Sandra Doelman,  Senior trainer and advisor

Our strength: Theory as well as practice

To achieve optimum results in our trainings, we combine scientific knowledge and research with best practices from many organisations. This way we connect theory with practice and understanding with behaviour.

Inclusion and diversity are the two cornerstones of our trainings and workshops. To really take things to a higher level we also look at the principles of change management, leadership development, and processes of group dynamics and other socio-psychological factors.

What we want is change. That is why we work with double-loop learning. This not only increases knowledge and insight, but also contributes to behavioural change and development.

Our approach to trainings

Based on high-quality insights on leadership and diversity:

  • Inspiring and challenging
  • Safe setting
  • Focus on knowledge as well as behaviour
  • Mixture of theory and practice
  • Appealing training methods
  • Focus on learning from each other
  • Humour and perspective
