Leadership Roles Where Everyone Participates

Studies reveal diverse companies perform better. However, many employees still feel excluded. Leaders must prioritize promoting inclusion. Create roles for all to participate in big decisions, not just executives. This stops top-down control. Leaders should share power, not hoard it.

Continuous Learning to Understand Impact and Manage Inclusion

Leadership today means constant learning. Help people unlearn outdated skills and biases. Learn skills to understand the impact on others and manage inclusion. Use AI chatbots to challenge biases safely. Or envision an ideal diverse future, then work backwards on getting there.

Question assumptions by examining worst-case harmful behaviours.

Explore emerging issues through inquiries. AI chatbots provide a safe, unlearning space. Envision possible futures and identify needed skills.
