The founding director of The Center on Race, Leadership, and Social Justice at the University of St. Thomas School of Law, Tyner lays out that framework with eloquent clarity, urging leaders to increase their cultural intelligence and set DEI goals—and commit to them. Inclusive leadership is a practice, not a talking point, one that demands leaders “actively seek out and consider different views and perspectives to inform better decision-making” and “see diverse talent as a source of competitive advantage and inspire diverse people to drive organizational and individual performance towards a shared vision.'" Case studies, charts, infographics, copious original and practical advice, and thoughtful tools for reflection make the case and encourage readers to pause, reflect, and grow.
Tyner is precise and to-the-point, offering an informative and often entertaining roadmap whose principles apply to all manner of workplaces or organizations, perfect for readers entering management, entrepreneurs looking to create a comfortable environment for their employees, or anyone already in a position of leadership. The Inclusive Leader is a comprehensive, up-to-date toolbox designed to help readers build new ways of seeing, thinking, and leading—and to lead by example in fostering diverse, positive, welcoming environments in the workplace or the community.
Takeaway: A clear, precise how-to guide for leaders ready to walk the walk when it comes to diversity and inclusion.
