2020 has changed the world of work forever, and leadership is a key element of that. What will leadership look like in 2021 and what skills will you need to get and stay ahead?
Have you considered that a meeting might not be the best way to make the decisions you need to, get the inputs you require or to update people on vital information? Alternative approaches might make sure everyone feels included and that their time is respected. But if it must be a meeting, have you thought about how to make sure it is inclusive?
Hardeep Mathuru, Editor of Byline Times, is on a mission to increase representation of minority voices in the media. She thinks a lot of the problems of misrepresentation in the media are a result of not having enough diverse voices in the profession of journalism. That different people, with different lived experiences, are what’s needed.
Imagine if diverse people were mentored by someone who could help them feel the inclusion, belonging and hope to progress their career. Imagine the power of having a mentor to introduce you to the connections who can help you achieve your ambitions. Mentoring could be the secret ingredient for inclusion in your organisation.
