The journey to becoming an inclusive leader is ongoing, challenging, and rewarding. There is always more to learn, and it isn’t easy to quantify the opportunity for improvement. In this post, I share a six-stage, strengths-based growth continuum as a tool for reflecting on each component of the inclusive leadership development model. Watch a webinar and download a free tool at the bottom of this page.
Are you an inclusive leader?
The strengths-based growth continuum helps us consider how we can evolve into inclusive leaders. In the downloadable tool, you can reflect on each component of the inclusive leadership development model across the continuum. In addition, there are prompts to identify evidence of our current practices, and set goals for growth.
Strengths-based Growth Continuum
When reflecting, it is important to maintain a positive mindset. The exercise shouldn’t feel punitive, but a thoughtful analysis of self, your practice, and your efforts in relation to those around you.
Recognizes an opportunity to learn and practice knowledge and skills.
Demonstrates beginning knowledge and skills with limited use of the defined practice.
Commits to and expands knowledge and skills, but performance is inconsistent.
Applies knowledge and skills consistently and thoroughly in a recognizable way.
Sustains an exemplary level of practice and intentionally models this element for others.
Stimulates and facilitates institutional change improving system-wide outcomes.
