Exclusively for Chartered HRNZ Members, this webinar will explore what it means to be a truly diverse and inclusive organisation.

Diversity and Inclusion is a hot topic in HR right now, but has anyone really cracked it in terms of building a truly diverse and inclusion organisation? AskYourTeam believes that diversity and inclusion could be the greatest untapped source of increased productivity for New Zealand organisations, but our limited understanding of the true dimensions of diversity has been holding us back. They argue that realising the diversity dividend requires a new understanding of diversity that extends beyond demographic diversity to embrace diversity of thinking as well. This leads us into how different thinking styles can complement each other, and what style makes the best leader (it might surprise you!).

AskYourTeam suggests Kiwi leaders should change their approach to leadership in order to truly reap the gains from diversity and inclusion for their organisations. They say it’s time to move away from command and control leadership towards a new model that they call leadership by involvement. The key to building this new model into the DNA of our organisations requires a combination of two things - a shift in many leaders’ attitudes, and the intelligent use of technology.

This is an exclusive webinar for Chartered HRNZ Members only.
