Empowering Line Managers: Introducing our NEW Inclusive Leadership Workshops


Fostering inclusivity isn’t just a moral imperative—it’s also a strategic advantage. As organisations strive to thrive in a global marketplace and leverage the talents of a diverse workforce, the role of line managers becomes increasingly crucial. We’ve been having the same conversations on repeat recently about line managers being phenomenal at their jobs, but never receiving inclusivity training to support them in managing their teams. You don’t know what you don’t know, right? That’s why we’ve designed a specialised workshop focused on empowering line managers with the skills and knowledge needed to lead inclusively.


Here’s why we’re excited about it:


Frontline Impact

Line managers are the heartbeat of our daily operations. They’re the ones who shape team dynamics, nurture relationships and influence decision making processes. Have you heard the saying “culture eats strategy for breakfast”? No matter how well designed our strategic business objectives are, if we don’t have the internal culture to support them, they’ll fall short. Line managers serve as cultural architects within their teams, setting the tone for inclusivity through their words, actions, and behaviours. By providing them with the tools and training to champion diversity and inclusion, we can accelerate cultural transformation and create lasting impact throughout the organisation.


Mitigating Bias and Conflict

We all have biases, both conscious and unconscious – it’s human nature, but they often create significant barriers to inclusion and team collaboration. We’ll equip line managers with the skills they need to foster environments where diverse perspectives are heard and respected. They’ll walk away being able to recognise and mitigate bias, facilitate constructive conversations, and proactively address conflict.


“What stood out most was how well 50:50 achieved a safe and non-judgmental tone. I found that environment they set ideal for challenging myself and my biases without feeling under fire.”
Crispin Chatterton | Director of Education GL Education Group

Driving Performance and Innovation

Research consistently shows that diverse teams outperform carbon copy ones in terms of creativity, problem-solving, and innovation. By embracing inclusive leadership practices, line managers can unlock the full potential of their teams, leveraging diverse perspectives to drive performance and achieve business objectives. Inclusive leadership isn’t just about doing the right thing—it’s also about driving tangible results and gaining a competitive edge in today’s rapidly evolving marketplace.


By equipping line managers with the knowledge, tools, and support they need to lead inclusively, we can drive positive cultural change, foster innovation, and create workplaces where every individual has the opportunity to excel.
