The Future of Work: Unlocking Leadership Excellence

In today’s dynamic business landscape, leadership stands as a cornerstone of organizational success — making it one of our most requested topics in 2024. From managing diverse teams to leading innovation and fostering cultures of belonging, our most popular blogs in March explored leadership excellence in action.

With March being Women’s History Month and home to International Women’s Day, we featured several of our leading female keynote speakers on the blog. Drawing from first-hand experience, they shared tips and advice on how to become leaders people actually want to follow now and in the future of work.

When the pressure becomes too much for all of you… remind yourself, somebody put you in this position because they believe in you, and they believe that you can get the job done.

The “How” of Inclusive Leadership with Ritu Bhasin

Ritu Bhasin

Belonging and inclusion are increasingly being referenced when discussing the new world of work. But with high belonging linked to a 56% increase in job performance, a 50% drop in turnover risk, and a 75% reduction in sick days according to a study by Betterup, leaders need to do more than just talk about it, they need to act.

If you’re wondering where to start, Ritu Bhasin — an internationally recognized expert in leadership, workplace culture, inclusion, and belonging — is your guide. She walked us through three key pillars of inclusive leadership, sharing concrete strategies to help leaders put them into action today for transformative results.

Model for your team what it looks like to be vulnerable… because belonging only happens when people are empowered to bring their authentic selves to work.
