The Best Quality of Diversity and Inclusion Leaders 

There’s a quality that I’ve seen in the best Diversity & Inclusion Leaders

it’s something that unites them and it’s something that you can develop over time for yourself

I’m not talking about persuasion skills

I’m not talking about communication skills

I’m not even talking about empathy

I’m talking about something else

Get your pen and paper ready because we’re going to talk about one of the most desirable, most highly valued skills that I’ve ever seen in a diversity and Inclusion leader

In todays show we discuss several things including:

  • Why the best Diversity & Inclusion Leaders are hiding in plain sight
  • The hidden attributes that support their behaviour
  • The reasons why they may not fit in and much more

Here’s some of what I share in the show:

They have a critical mass of knowledge

“There’s a critical mass of knowledge. Having that allows you to select, to choose to decide. Without it, you’re part of the problem instead of being part of the solution because it makes the inclusion journey of everyone around you longer instead of shorter”

They interpret based on skilled contributors

“they draw together approaches, techniques, perspectives in order to create meaning from people who are highly trained and highly skilled”

They have taste based on their critical thinking

“anyone who has taste, has developed it over time, they’ve thought about it, it’s particular to them, their knowledge and experiences.”
