In goodmorning bsn! door Business School Nederland

In a recent Goodmorning BSN! presentation, Dr Solomon Kpandei, a seasoned leadership and management consultant with over 22 years of experience, shared his insights into the significance of inclusive leadership.

Solomon’s expertise spans various sectors, including private and public institutions, as well as non-profit organisations. As a Principal Consultant at SKG LLC, a global leadership consulting company, he is dedicated to nurturing high-impact leaders who can shape the destinies of organisations and countries alike.

During his presentation, Solomon underscored the critical role of inclusive decision-making in organisational success. He shared anecdotes highlighting the consequences of exclusionary practices and emphasised the need for leaders to consider diverse perspectives when making strategic decisions.

Key Principles of Inclusive Leadership: Insights from Scholarly Definitions and Tenets

Drawing on definitions by esteemed leadership scholars like Professor Peter G. Northouse, Solomon explained that leadership is a process of influencing a group of individuals toward a common goal. He emphasised the importance of inclusivity in this process, highlighting how it fosters innovation and enhances organisational performance.

Discussing the principles of inclusive leadership, Solomon outlined four key tenets: dynamism and change orientation, horizontal thinking, holistic and broadly applicable decision-making, and explicit normativity. These principles serve as guiding principles for leaders seeking to cultivate inclusive cultures within their organisations.

Solomon stressed the importance of global thinking and cultural agility in today’s interconnected world. Leaders must possess a global mindset, engaging across geographic, cultural, and sectoral boundaries to drive innovation and foster collaboration.

Inclusive leadership is the glue that binds diverse talents together, unlocking their full potential and driving organisational success. By embracing inclusivity, leaders can harness the collective wisdom of their teams and create environments where every voice is heard and valued.

Solomon’s insights are a timely reminder of the transformative power of inclusive leadership. As organisations strive to navigate challenges and seize opportunities, embracing inclusivity is not just a moral imperative but a strategic imperative for success.
