Quiz: Are You an Inclusive Leader?Feb 11, 2020
What separates a great manager from a mediocre one? According to Catalyst’s new global report, Getting Real About Inclusive Leadership, building an inclusive team culture is key.
A manager’s behavior has a direct link to employee experiences of inclusion—in fact, almost half of an employee’s experience of inclusion can be explained by managerial inclusive leadership behaviors.
There are two broad categories of behaviors that leaders can practice to be more inclusive:
- Leading outward is what you do to ensure team members are treated fairly, empowered, and able to flourish.
- Leading inward requires a hard look at who you are and your inner ability to act courageously, learn, and self-reflect.
Employees’ experiences of inclusion at work explain how constructively teams problem-solve, how engaged employees are, how interested they are in staying at their jobs, and how much they feel like they can innovate.
This quiz is intended as a starting point for considering what strengths and areas of opportunity you have as a leader for building workplaces that work.
