Do you have the courage to be inclusive?

By Bill Springer on September 14, 2015

“Being a leader really requires us to have courage, to take chances, to take risks, to push ourselves in places where we really feel uncomfortable at times,” says Laura Stone, Linkage’s Vice President of Inclusive Leadership. Laura is facilitating the Linkage Intensive™ on Leading Inclusively, which kicks off tomorrow in Chicago.

Before she takes center stage, we wanted to share some insights with you that we captured during a recent conversation with her at our office here in Burlington, MA. As you’ll see in this insightful video clip, when it comes to developing inclusive leadership, the courage that it takes to challenge our own biases may just be the most important leadership skill of all.

Food for thought, right? Please share your comments with us in the box below.

Also, we invite you to join the conversation with us online this week using the hashtag #LinkageILI.

  1. Great job, Laura. I completely agree every word you stated, especially when you asserted, “Being a leader really requires us to have courage, to take chances, to take risks, to push ourselves in places where we really feel uncomfortable at times.”
    Keep that courage going, Laura.
