Leading Inclusive, High Performing Organizations --- Organizations reap competitive advantages when they fully engage and utilize the talents of people from different backgrounds and with different perspectives. Studies show that leveraging those differences can ignite learning, innovation, problem solving and critical thinking. However, leaders must have requisite knowledge and skills to transform diverse potential into excellent performance. In this course, we explore factors at every level (e.g., C-suite, policy, management, teams and individuals) that impede or enable inclusive, high performing organizations. Gain insights and skills that strengthen your capacity to lead yourself and others to achieve mission critical goals.
