Leading Diversity in a Changing World with Simon Walker

Not sure you’ve got to grips with how to best use the wisdom and experience, youth and exuberance, skills and potential of those across your teams? This event takes a straightforward look at the huge topic that is “Diversity”, viewing and seeing things through a “leader lens”.

With business and modern life being transformed and disrupted faster than ever, expectations, preferences and attitudes of our people has never been more diverse or complex.  What people want from work and how they are best led varies greatly across ages, previous experiences and varied adoption rates of new technologies and work styles.  This diversity in our teams is a huge strength, but few leaders feel truly informed, confident or skilled to lead diverse groups effectively through disruption and change.

Relying on stereotypes - such as  labelling younger team members  ‘millennials’ - is not particularly helpful when applied to individuals; there is usually as much diversity within any stereotypical cohort as there is between groups. A better approach is to adopt personal strategies to maintain insight into ever changing viewpoints, and armed with this insight to then adapt universal principles to engage and inspire diverse groups.

In this session we explore the drivers for change of work expectations, the highly varied patterns of adoption and the ongoing trends and patterns. We then look at five highly practical areas of focus smart leaders should consider to enable them to better lead diverse groups through complexity and change.
