The 7 Simple Habits of Inclusive Leaders
Melissa Majors, CEO, Melissa Majors Consulting

What do inclusive leaders do? What specific actions do they take to demonstrate a commitment to inclusion? 

Inclusive leadership expert Melissa Majors is an innovator and optimizer of inclusion, leadership, and education strategies. In The 7 Simple Habits of Inclusive Leaders, she reveals how great leaders enjoy superior team performance and drive much higher profitability by incorporating inclusive practices.

These behaviors fall into seven categories:

  • Business Process
  • Collaboration
  • Mindset
  • Leading Self and Others
  • Decisions
  • Values
  • Empathy

Majors delivers clarity on how our brains are to blame for why leaders unintentionally exclude others. Through storytelling, research, and personal experiences, she offers a common-sense yet compelling and actionable approach to inclusion. She argues that people shouldn't feel guilty or defensive when having inclusion-related conversations; the brain is to blame, not people.

This discussion is for all leaders - leaders of self, people, initiatives, and organizations. 

Learner Outcomes:

  •  Identify and describe concepts such as intellectual humility, tactical empathy, and intersectionality.
  • Gain insight into the habits and tactics used by inclusive leaders.
  • Unlock access to social posts, job aides, and toolkits to help build inclusive habits.
