Inclusive Leadership

Find out what Inclusive Leadership is.

What is inclusive leadership?

In 2016 enei launched a report on inclusive leadership. We define inclusive leadership as: “leaders who are aware of their own biases and preferences, actively seek out and consider different views and perspectives to inform better decision-making. They see diverse talent as a source of competitive advantage and inspire diverse people to drive organisational and individual performance towards a shared vision.”

This definition is supported by 15 core competencies:

Do your leaders show individual interest and offer one-to-one support for diverse people?

Do your leaders provide an appealing vision that inspires diversity of thinking and being?

Do your leaders encourage diverse talent to develop ideas and to be challenging?

Do your leaders encourage creative thinking?

Do your leaders show acceptance of everyone without bias?

Do your leaders appreciate the perspectives of others and endeavour to understand how others feel?

Do your leaders listen to the opinions of diverse groups?

Can your leaders command credible influence on people's actions without force or coercion?

Do your leaders provide positive feedback to boost people's self-efficacy?

Do your leaders provide opportunities for all diverse employees to realise potential, make autonomous and unique contributions and progress with the organisation?

Are your leaders able to consider the views of others about possible outcomes?

Can your leaders focus on how employees contribute to long-term objectives?

Do your leaders have self-awareness of how preconceived views can influence behaviour towards others?

Do your leaders show a commitment to leading by serving others for the good of everyone rather than for self-gain?

Do your leaders show a respect for the wellbeing of all employees?
