Creating Cultures of Inclusion
Organizations in the top quartile for ethnic and cultural diversity are 35% more likely to post better financial performance.*
And yet, organizations continue to struggle to build cultures that truly value and appreciate difference.
Are you encouraging and empowering leaders at your organization to lead inclusively?
Linkage research shows that companies that develop leaders who do things for a purpose and with a purpose enjoy 2x stronger revenue growth, 4x profit growth and 9x employee engagement. These Purposeful Leaders stand above the rest in the five core competencies correlated with effective leadership: Inspire, Innovate, Engage, Achieve and Become.
Here’s what else our research shows—these highly effective Purposeful Leaders are also highly inclusive in their leadership styles. They manage effectively across generational, ethnic, racial, gender, or other identity lines. And they lead with an authenticity that inspires their teams to communicate openly and thrive together.
Linkage’s Creating Cultures of Inclusion solution is a practical framework to assess, evaluate, and accelerate inclusive leadership qualities in leaders at all levels.
We empower organizations to elevate their leaders’ capabilities in the areas most closely correlated with inclusive leadership. This framework is based on decades of work with more than one million leaders worldwide.
