How can you lead your team more effectively?
Organizations are more than ever required to leverage the diversity of their employees and teams to thrive in this ever-changing and highly competitive world.
Substantial evidence demonstrates that diverse and trusting teams in the public and private sectors may enable the advancement of peace, security and sustainable development.
However, leveraging diversity demands an environment of inclusion and equality. And this is where things get tricky for organizations. Most organizations approach diversity, inclusion and equality as a problem to solve or a tick-box exercise instead of being a series of polarities that they have to understand, balance and lead. To read more about polarities, please find this op ed "Diversity and Inclusion: applying ancient wisdom to shift mindsets for more sustainable outcomes."
This course is run with the Geneva Leadership Alliance, a first-of-its-kind partnership that brings together in-depth understanding of peace, security and policy issues at the GCSP, as well as over 40 years of research and expertise developing leaders through the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL). For the fourth year in a row, CCL was ranked within the top ten global executive education providers by the Financial Times.
The course introduces you to key mindsets, toolsets and skillsets to lead more inclusively and generate successful collective outcomes. The modules of the course will enable you to:
- Understand assumptions about diversity in relation to performance;
- Apply a tool to see, map and leverage different polarities (tensions) within teams and organisations;
- Learn and share with other professionals the best practices to nurture participation and inclusion for enhanced team performance;
- Build your network of professionals in international Geneva.
