Why it is Important to Assess Your Inclusive Culture Intelligently

Last week, I discovered that the arthritic hip that I had been protecting from too much exercise over the past 12 years was, in fact, not arthritis at all. It turns out that it is an inflexibility in my lower back that would have benefitted greatly from a decade or so of much more exercise than I was doing. The discomfort in my hip, knee and ankle was a compensation for the inflexibility in my back… An inflexibility that I should have been actively managing for quite a while now.

The Decade That Will Change It All

Leadership + Inclusion. Two perspectives A-Z.   When Leading NOW and Luisi Tromba Advisors formed a strategic partnership, we did so because we knew...  This decade is going to forever change Leadership. We shared the same beliefs, but got there from two very distinct paths. Not surprisingly, we ended up with the same conclusion. To be a successful leader in this decade and even, dare we say, in this century––Inclusion is the game changer.

Reverse Mentoring as Diverse Mentoring

A Catalyst for an Inclusive Culture  We all know that mentorship can help pave the way for career success on the road to leadership. We also know that leaders drive culture. But for a culture to truly be inclusive, leaders must model inclusivity in all that they do. For organizations and leaders who recognize the value of creating an inclusive culture, but struggle to fundamentally shift their culture to one of inclusion for all, one proven and profound method is a formalized Reverse Mentoring program. Reverse Mentoring enables people in more senior positions to gain insight from having regular, semi-structured conversations with team members who are likely to see the world from a different perspective. The process aids in better decision-making, higher retention rates for diverse talent through greater job satisfaction, and giving invaluable exposure to under-represented talent, nurturing allies and advocates within senior ranks.  Simply put, Reverse Mentoring is really about inclusion. In addition to having a positive impact on your company’s culture, Reverse Mentoring will liberate the power of all humans to generate the desired business outcomes needed to compete in today’s business environment.
