Creating Inclusive Workplaces

This course examines the unique ways in which a servant leader can drive and impact diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. Servant leaders play a vital role in developing new talent and driving a more sustainable culture of excellence and acceptance. Using Robert Greenleaf’s servant leadership model, this course offers students methods to incorporate care and compassion into effective leadership that transforms traditional organizational culture into one that is collaborative, supportive, and innovative. In understanding the eight defining characteristics of servant leaders, we will identify the traits that separate a good leader from an effective one. Finally, we will consider examples of modern-day servant leaders who have transformed their industries and created inclusive workspaces. This course is an excellent foundation for better understanding and implementing diversity initiatives into your organizational design.
