Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

 

Inclusive Leadership (IL) is about relationships that can accomplish things for mutual benefit. Reaching leadership at this next level means “doing things with people, rather than to people,” which is the essence of inclusion. Improving decision making and achieving desired ends are among its goals, without relying on one person’s capabilities alone. It also provides an atmosphere that promotes fairness of input and output to all. Inclusive Leadership respects competition and cooperation as part of a participative process.

This two-way operation of leadership and followership depends upon Respect, Recognition, Responsiveness, and Responsibility, both ways. These are the four Rs of Inclusive Leadership that are vital to successful practice. A leader’s “vision,” or cognitive skill, alone will not do. 

Leadership is a pivotal issue that affects the success and failure of every organization, country, and religious movement. The speed of change and complexity in today’s business environment make leadership increasingly exigent, placing unrealistic expectations on heroic leaders (Yukl,2006). 

Ostensibly, it is becoming more difficult for any single individual to possess all of the skills and abilities required to competently lead organizations today (O’Toole, Galbraith, &Lawler, 2002). 

O’Toole et al. affirmed, “Frequently, organizations learn the hard way that no one individual can save a company from mediocre performance and no one individual, no matter how gifted a leader, can be ‘right’ all the time”  

Many CEOs do accomplish much for their organizations by a team effort and through their cognitive skills, drive, and stamina. So, Inclusive Leadership evolved as a major modern theme drawn from my debt to others’ pioneer work. Furthermore, leader attention to the interests and needs of followers is essential to achieve effective leadership.

Actually, the IL approach departs from the long tradition of focusing largely on the leader as a means of understanding leadership. By contrast, IL looks at what is needed in the context to help in such ways as improving problem solving and attaining mutual goals. Finally Inclusive leadership is vital to the well-being and maintenance of a group, organization, or society and interacts to affect other processes such as conformity, independence, and cohesiveness. In end we conclude that Inclusive leadership occurs throughout society and is basic to many significant features of life. The quality of leadership can affect the successes or failures of a group, organization, or nation. It also affects “social health,” in regard to the well-being of others.
