Inclusive Leadership

Find out what Inclusive Leadership is.

What is inclusive leadership?

In 2016 enei launched a report on inclusive leadership. We define inclusive leadership as: “leaders who are aware of their own biases and preferences, actively seek out and consider different views and perspectives to inform better decision-making. They see diverse talent as a source of competitive advantage and inspire diverse people to drive organisational and individual performance towards a shared vision.”

This definition of inclusive leadership is supported by 15 core competencies, which are available for our Members. Below are 3 examples of the core competencies that make an inclusive leader:

Do your leaders provide an appealing vision that inspires diversity of thinking and being?

Do your leaders provide opportunities for all diverse employees to realise potential, make autonomous and unique contributions and progress with the organisation?

Do your leaders have self-awareness of how preconceived views can influence behaviour towards others?

In order to support businesses to embed best practice, enei have designed a unique inclusive leadership assessment tool (ILAt). This new tool allows organisations to measure the extent to which inclusive leadership exists across a range of management and leadership populations.
