Inclusive Leadership – Self Assessment

Published on: Sun 3 February 2019 by Admin

Good people management includes promoting and supporting diversity in the workplace – people perform best when they can be themselves.

We all believe that we are inclusive in the workplace but how often do we take the time to think about what that means and check out whether we are as inclusive as we think? Why not take 3 minutes out of your day now to do begin to do this?

This short questionnaire is based on research by Juliet Bourke & Bernadette Dillon which identifies six attributes of an inclusive leader: Cognisance; Curiosity; Courage; Cultural Intelligence; Collaboration and Commitment.

Once you have submitted the questionnaire you will receive some feedback on your answers, as well as access to a FREE 'The Road to Inclusive Leadership' e-Booklet.

1. Have you taken time to learn about your own personal biases?

2. How often do you hold others to account when they behave in a way that’s not inclusive?

3. Do you take time to understand the uniqueness of each team member?

4. How confident are you in leading cross-cultural teams?

5. When you make decisions about candidates for promotions, rewards and task allocations, can you be 100% sure that they are fair and based on merit?

6. When generating new ideas do you actively seek the perspectives of a diverse mix of people?

7. In the workplace do you clearly articulate the value of diversity and inclusion?

8. Do you explicitly include all team members in discussions?
