You strive to build up and support all kinds of people. But remember that inclusion happens when people feel valued while being themselves, not when they have to be the same as everyone else in order to belong.
Become aware of when you might be trying to “fix” individuals to fit into a certain style instead of realizing how the company can adapt to develop and harness talent that presents in different ways. Think about what’s really required to do the job - not just the way we are used to the job being done.
Expand your observation skills to look at the patterns of who gets heard, who gets invited to meetings, and who gets opportunity.
