How does diversity of age and gender increase the long-term sustainability of organisations?
Diversity and the incorporation of multiple perspectives can only have a positive impact if internal communication takes place on an equal footing. Inputs need to be actively engaged with, regardless of where they come from within existing hierarchies. To achieve this, a new, collectively-oriented leadership style is required.
FREIES RADIKAL offers support in the development of leadership and communication skills that bring positive change to organisations’ internal cultures – the foundation for successful change management.
Teams need settings in which individuals are listened to and their contributions valued, regardless of the speaker’s role, gender, age, or other characteristics. For this to succeed, all team members need to reflect upon their own positionality and develop meta-communication skills.
Meta-communication is communication between the lines; that which is not said but nonetheless implicitly conveyed. Shaping meta-communication requires a conscious effort and must be carefully thought through – a challenge that digitalisation alone cannot resolve.
FREIES RADIKAL provides the tools and support that organisations need in order to successfully re-shape their internal meta-communication – as a team.
