Learning Program

Inclusive Teaming

Inclusive Teaming veers away from conventional individual-centric learning paradigms by positioning teams at the core of its strategy. The programme is thoughtfully designed to zero in on the foundational dynamics that underpin high-performing teams, notably emphasizing the art of collaborative engagement and harnessing the power of diversity. Participants are equipped with profound insights and competencies, nurturing the cultivation of a team environment characterized by psychological safety and inclusivity.  

With a blended learning design consisting of three virtual live sessions, three self-paced learning modules as well as exercises to be integrated into everyday activities, the programme acknowledges that most of our learning happens "on the job" within a specific context. In the interaction between learning and input from the program, along with the associated exercises to be conducted within the team's daily work, the team gets to experiment, explore, and embed new ‘ways of working’ in the team.

What makes ‘Inclusive Teaming’ unique?

  • Team-centric approach: Unlike most other learning focusing solely on individuals, this programme prioritizes teams as the core unit of change. Recognizing that collaboration and collective effort are essential for effective DEI improvements, it emphasizes the power of teams over isolated allies. 
  • Blended learning design: The programme combines the strengths of virtual learning formats with action-oriented engagement. This approach ensures that teams not only understand but also apply their insights directly to real-world scenarios, making the learning experience more meaningful and actionable.
  • Social learning integration: A key aspect of the programme is the emphasis on social learning. By providing all team members with the same insights and knowledge, the programme creates a shared foundation. This process of learning together fosters mutual support and accountability within the team thereby increasing the level of inclusion.
  • Global DEI Community: The programme goes beyond the immediate learning content as participants become part of a broader global community in DEI Club. This community offers access to valuable resources, insights, exclusive events, peer networks, and more. 

Why Join the Inclusive Teaming Programme?

  • Create stronger team bonds: The programme boosts team connections and understanding, fostering better teamwork.
  • Learning together: Teams develop agreed-upon behaviors, which helps to create a psychologically safe and inclusive environment.
  • Higher collective performance: The programme cultivates psychological safety, which is likely to boost efficiency and creativity. 
  • Unlock the power of open and candid conversations: Through this investment in team growth, open and honest conversations will flourish. This in turn minimizes misunderstandings and brings out skills that might have stayed hidden otherwise.
