Here are some key takeaways from this episode:
Authentic Leaders encourage people to be their true selves
“Authentic leaders encourage open communication and their followers’ ability to be their “true selves”, they create an open and fair work environment”
This study found that this increased employee perceptions of inclusion.
Authentic Leaders increase employee perceptions of Inclusion
“They found that being included shows employees they are important, valued and trusted. Employees who feel included are more likely to experience greater self-worth as members of the organisation and more likely to help their co-workers manage and prevent problems, demonstrate initiative, show up on time, overlook inconveniences and care about their organisation’s status in the marketplace. Who doesn’t want this?”
Authentic Leaders can create a Business Case for Diversity & Inclusion
“This directly speaks to the identity work I mentioned earlier, when employees spend less time on identity work, they can spend more time on their jobs! That’s a nice punchy, clear, specific business case for diversity right there.”
