Inclusive Leadership: The View From Six Countries

Inclusive Leadership: The View From Six Countries | The global leader | Scoop.it

How much do the very definitions of inclusion vary from culture to culture? Are there gender differences in what makes employees feel included? What leadership behaviors can promote inclusion? And how much do these behaviors need to be adapted for different cultural contexts?

 

This study delves into the striking similarities across most countries in how employees characterize inclusion and the leadership behaviors that help to foster it.

Click on the URL; empathy played a key role in our Conducting Effective Performance Discussions webinar, particularly around handling challenging reactions.

David Barrett's curator insight, January 19, 2014 9:13 AM

THIS IS A REPOST.  sorry - I posted the wrong article yesterday...

This is an awesome message to all of us Type A’s: stop talking once in a while and listen!  It offers three key behaviors of empathetic listening: 
- recognizing all verbal and nonverbal cues; 
- processing, understanding the meaning of the messages
- assuring others that listening has occurred and encouraging communication to continue.

The bottom line, says author Christine Riordan… “Slowing down, engaging with others rather than endlessly debating, taking the time to hear and learn from others, and asking brilliant questions are ultimately the keys to success."

The Value of Content Curation: Thought Leadership

The Value of Content Curation: Thought Leadership | The global leader | Scoop.it

Being a thought leader has always been a priority for businesses, but not particularly easy to become. Even if a brand is incredibly innovative, creative and effective, it won’t grow if it’s not being proactive. With the importance of online presence increasing, brands must find different ways to engage with their audience and to present new ideas to. One easy method to developing and succeeding in thought leadership is, simply, content curation.
