Inclusive Leadership

Used by the world’s leading organizations

Our solutions are used by a variety of organizations from Amazon to American Red Cross to Cornell University.

We assess & develop inclusive leadership capability at all levels.

Inclusion is one of the most important leadership attributes today – it helps teams and organizations identify new opportunities, protect against risks, and create equitable and engaging employee experiences.

Our assessment and development solutions help leaders at all levels to understand and strengthen their inclusive leadership effectiveness, providing a whole of organization approach to inclusive capability development.

Defining Inclusive Leadership – the ILC framework™

Inclusive leadership stands apart from other leadership approaches through its focus on behaviors that promote fairness, foster a sense of belonging and harness the power of difference to drive value creation. Leading inclusively sits at the heart of effective leadership more broadly.

Our assessment and development solutions are grounded in the Inclusive Leadership Compass framework – a validated, research-based model that operates at multiple levels and resonates strongly with leaders globally.   

Inclusive Leadership Compass

Our solutions

While inclusion is one of the most important leadership capabilities today, research shows that many leaders aren’t clear about what it means to lead inclusively and whether their current behaviors measure up. 

Our assessment and development solutions provide an individualized and scalable way to build more inclusive, effective leaders.  Underpinned by the Inclusive Leadership Compass framework™, 80 Acts of Inclusion™ and DEI Success Factors, these solutions help promote shared understanding, practical action, and drive systemic and sustainable change across an organization.
