Future proofing leadership skills

Developing leaders to be more inclusive in their leadership and management style is essential for any organization that wants to see significant progress in diversity and inclusion (D&I). Yet many leaders have D&I fatigue – they either see it as not their problem or that it is simply concerned with positive discrimination, specifically around gender and ethnicity. They don’t have a good understanding of why inclusion is good for them and good for business or what they should do about it. This session aims to address that.

Using inspiring ‘best practice’ stories combined with the latest research, Hayley will cover:

  • How D&I can help drive innovation and business results;
  • Why mega trends in diversity of markets, talent, customers, risk and ideas require a collaborative and inclusive response.
  • How inclusion and collaboration can be a fundamental driver of one’s leadership style;
  • What does inclusive leadership look like? How to future proof your leadership.
  • What the barriers to inclusion are (such as unconscious bias) and what you as a leader can do to mitigate their impact.
  • How you can shape, take ownership of, and be a role model for your organization’s D&I strategy

Practical inclusive leadership

Suitable for senior executives and people managers, this session (deliverable in person or via WebEx) helps leaders appreciate the solid business case for a more collaborative and inclusive style of leadership. Leaders explore ‘what’s it like to be on the other side of you...

Suitable for senior executives and people managers, this session (deliverable in person or via WebEx) helps leaders appreciate the solid business case for a more collaborative and inclusive style of leadership. Leaders explore ‘what’s it like to be on the other side of you?’ Traits of an inclusive leader are shared and used to inform what actions or small changes need to be made in leadership style that could have a significant impact on inclusion and drive diversity.

  • Diversity is a reality but inclusion is a choice and therefore requires action.
  • An updated model of leadership – leading from the centre – tapping into the wisdom of the crowd.
  • Traits of an inclusive leader: Collaboration/Cognizant of Bias/Curious
  • Various exercises to help delegates to explore current leadership style in relation to inclusion.

Developing a gender balanced business

It’s well publicized that companies in Europe are increasingly having to work harder to ensure they have a pipeline of women to senior level. The requirement on businesses over 250 employees to release their Gender Pay Gap in the UK has further highlighted the challenge....

It’s well publicized that companies in Europe are increasingly having to work harder to ensure they have a pipeline of women to senior level. The requirement on businesses over 250 employees to release their Gender Pay Gap in the UK has further highlighted the challenge.

Through case studies and using respected research, Hayley highlights the best practice of both men and women and the organisations they operate within.

Crucially, this is not a speech about how to fix the women, or blame the men. It’s about leveraging differences for the benefit of all. This session can be tailored to be women-only, or suitable for all in leadership positions.

About Keynote Speaker Hayley Barnard

About Speaker Hayley Barnard…

Hayley Barnard is a British professional speaker, consultant and high-level trainer on subjects including the business case for diversity, inclusive leadership, D&I communications and unconscious bias. She is passionate about inspiring business leaders to adopt the principle that diversity isn’t about difference, it’s about excellence.  She tackles issues surrounding unconscious bias and inclusiveness with humor, ensuring that her ideas have real value for audiences’ working lives.

Hayley combines the latest research on inclusion of diversity with first hand experience, helping a wide range of companies to build the inclusive leadership capabilities of their leaders. In the last year alone Hayley has:

  • Designed an Inclusive Leadership program for the top 600 leaders at Deutsche Telekom (delivered via WebEx in groups of 15-20)
  • Delivered a change management program for BAE Systems focusing on ‘embracing difference’ and ‘collaboration’ as a move away from traditional comms around Inclusion & Diversity,
  • Provided board level briefings and senior leadership training for clients including Aspect Capital, Legal and General Investment Management, Lloyds, Skanska, Morgan Sindall, De La Rue, T-Systems and Babcock.

One of the most innovative projects that Hayley has headed up is the LeasePlan Women’s Arctic Challenge in which she co-led a team of women on a traverse of Baffin Island, trekking and camping for 11 days at minus 40 degrees C. Hayley worked with LeasePlan to develop this unique platform to communicate the gender balance issue and challenge unconscious bias within their company and the wider car industry – the project also involved 150 schools in an education program.

When not at work or at home Hayley can usually be found swimming in the nearest stretch of open water: in August 2018 she completed the Around Manhattan Island swim race in 9 hours 30. She then successfully swam across the English Channel in October, taking 14 hours and 12 minutes to reach France. In 2019 Hayley is looking for a warmer challenge!

Testimonials

“Hayley provided a comprehensive briefing to our Executive Board, immediately setting the room at ease with her engaging and personable manner. The directors found the session and exercises insightful, and discussion flowed freely and openly. The impact has been immediate, with our first female Board appointment, a revised approach to recruitment (leading to us hiring a female developer), and a revised flexible working policy. Hayley’s contribution was vital – she demonstrated that Diversity and Inclusion isn’t an HR issue but a company-wide opportunity.”

Amanda Cherry

Director of HR, Aspect Capital

“Hayley came to talk with our Diversi-T network about unconscious bias. Hayley‘s knowledge, passion and style really struck a chord with us and she has since returned to T-Systems to do some more in depth work with our board of directors and present to all our people managers on unconscious bias and how recognizing and understanding its impact can be used to instigate positive change in our organisation.”

Jake Attfield

HR Director, T-Systems

“Hayley presented at our Senior Management Conference on Unconscious Bias and Inclusive Leadership. We have had fantastic feedback in terms of the great content which was delivered in both an engaging and authentic style. For example, ‘This was fascinating, brilliantly presented and directly applicable in the workplace.’”

Dan Forbes-Pepitone

Talent and Capabilities Director, Skanska

“Hayley recently presented at our EuroCACS conference for our Connecting Women Leaders in Technology programme. Her approach was energising, informative and presented with style and humour.
