How to offer every employee fair training and development opportunities
Your values, expectations, practices, and norms define your organisation’s culture. It evolves to match the changing demands of the environment you work in and with continued training and development, your business will become more than the sum of its parts. The best way to do this is to harness the diversity in your team. You can do this by encouraging creative challenges and building effective team unity. Getting teamwork right is essential to making the most of each individual’s talents, and employee training can make this happen.
One way of doing this is making sure your teams are inclusive. For example, a network analysis can produce ‘network maps’ of your team, function or department and tell you how inclusive those groups are. They can pick up on any diversity and inclusion themes, such as how well-connected women and ethnic minority employees are. Identifying things such as career blocks and exclusive networks should also be addressed too – leading to a more inclusive culture.
Because there is an urgent need to become more inclusive at all levels, many organisations are trying hard to offer each employee a fair training and development program. Once you provide every individual access to an employee development program, you can then empower them with strong leadership.
Inclusive Leaders for now and the future
In each program we run, we work with leaders to maximise the potential of their teams. Understanding the strengths and risks for any team is crucial, so using the right diagnostic tools is critical to measure these. For long-lasting change, we recommend working with our coaches, who have worked with thousands of leaders. As coaching psychologists, we have a deep understanding of people and how they learn. We understand what best motivates them to change their behaviour and develop, helping them as individuals and their organisation. We also pride ourselves on our inclusive leadership training, which can improve the inclusion and performance in your organisation.
We don’t stop there. Discovering tomorrow’s leaders today will stand you in good stead for the times ahead. There’s no better time to start. The benefits of identifying great potential are obvious, but how do you recognise these individuals? Our research has identified the key building blocks that define a person’s ability to learn and develop new skills and abilities- the indicators that define people’s potential. Implementing our employee training program gives you the ability to spot them earlier and be more confident that you’ve got it right.
As well as Inclusive Leadership training, we offer inclusive and bias-free performance management processes throughout our services and solutions:
