There are reasons why organizations failing to create more inclusive workplaces. One of them is that traditional leadership practices no longer work. CEOs and HR leaders can start to move the inclusion needle more rapidly through modern leadership practices. Read on for key learnings from original research by the O.C. Tanner Institute and modern leadership strategies for success.
Before the pandemic, traditional leadership was already failing. Employees had overwhelmingly rejected old-school leadership practices such as gatekeeping and micro-managing. This forced organizations to rethink and reshape the way they lead. Alternatively, organizations opted for modern leadership practices that feature more productive aspects such as employee mentoring and coaching.
Our research shows that when leaders coach, develop, and connect their employees, they can thrive in ways that drive personal and organizational success. Part of building a culture where employees thrive is building an inclusive organization where all employees feel welcome.
But it’s not just about feeling accepted. Better inclusion also leads to better business results.
Studies show that organizations with inclusive and diverse cultures consistently deliver better results. But during recent times, these initiatives have fallen short.
