The session will contribute to the 2017 conference theme by helping delegates understand that ‘Inclusion’ is not just a word that you add into your conversations about equality and/or diversity. Rather, inclusion lies at the very heart of high quality sustainable team and organisational performance. Moreover, ‘Professionalising your Practice’ has to be about enabling organisations to value and develop their people and to help them get more out of more of their people more of the time. We will discuss a formula for performance and its implications for coaches and mentors; explore different aspects of diversity and the extent to which our understanding of self in this regard can enable us to better support our clients; and we will experience two powerful tools that we can use, as coaches and mentors, to enable our clients to see how they can unleash the power of inclusion in their teams.
