Women in Leadership Seminar Series presents:

Egoless Leadership: Taking the Lead for Inclusion & Diversity

Leading with purpose and empathy to empower your team to achieve their full potential
Selling Fast

When you get inclusion right, and good leaders unleash the best from their people, organisations thrive.

– Francis Frei, Professor Harvard Business School.

Egoless leaders sincerely want to help everyone in their team to thrive. Their empathy and drive for inclusion and equity enable an organisational culture of shared purpose and support toward a common goal. They embrace and expect tolerance for uniqueness and all ideas are embraced and explored.

A key global issue that has proven to be difficult to solve is the underrepresentation of women and the lack of diversity in leadership roles. In addition, with the workplace more disconnected than ever, people are struggling to find the meaning and motivation in their workplace experiences to remain engaged and willing to contribute.

This seminar is focused on helping leaders find a way to work better together to shape the world they want to live in. It was borne out of the need to help leaders build organisations where people can work and grow together in an inclusive and flexible way to thrive. Shaping organisations and teams as empowering places where everyone can achieve their full potential and lead with purpose.
