HARNESSING DIVERSITY & CREATING INCLUSION
THROUGH EXECUTIVE COACHING & WORKSHOPS
THROUGH EXECUTIVE COACHING & WORKSHOPS
For many organisations Diversity & Inclusion is merely a process of developing a policy for compliance and reporting responsibilities, as part of business requirements under anti-discrimination legislation.
Few organisations actually succeed in making it real and harnessing the benefits which come from having an inclusive organisation.
Historically, responsibility for ensuring a workplace is free from discrimination and harassment has been a key area of focus for HR. However, it’s increasingly becoming a critical issue for boards as an inclusive workplace plays a pivotal role in shaping views of stakeholders.
DIVERSITY & INCLUSION – NO LONGER JUST A ‘TREND’
Talent is not defined or limited by gender, age, race, nationality, disability or sexual orientation. D&I is about encouraging open minds, creating an inclusive culture where every individual is empowered to build a rewarding career and achieve their full potential. (PWC Luke Sayers)
There are significant benefits to be gained from getting diversity strategy and policy right, not least in opening up a rich seam of potential talent. Just as significant are the potential risks of ineffective D&I culture and policy implementation.
BOLT CONSULT’S coaching programs & workshops are designed specifically to harness the strengths of all individuals and mitigate perceived biases that may have been formed, ensuring that the right people are focused on the right things, resulting in higher performing individuals and teams producing greater business outcomes.
THE BENEFITS OF HAVING A D&I CULTURE
Business & Economic Growth – harnessing individual thought and varying approaches to problem solving, assists in internationalising businesses resulting in a direct benefit for local, state and national economies.
Profit and Performance – improved job and team performance which equals higher return on income and productivity, effective utilisiation of right people for the right jobs increasing team effectiveness.
Innovation – flexible thinking rather than fixed view of one’s own and other’s identities can lead to greater creativity.

Reputational Issues – poor reputation can lead to a loss of customers and prospective employees, increased questioning from investors and unwanted attention from media, regulators and unions.
