DIVERSE LEADERSHIP TEAMS DELIVER BETTER RESULTS
ALL OF THE STUDIES IN THIS AREA COME TO THE SAME CONCLUSION: MORE DIVERSE LEADERSHIP TEAMS DELIVER BETTER RETURNS. A 2015 STUDY BY MCKINSEY ON DIVERSITY & A 2013 WILLIAMS INSTITUTE LGBT+ WORKPLACE STUDY FOUND THAT:
- In the UK for every 10% increase in gender diversity in the senior-executive team, EBIT rose by 3.5%
- Companies in the top quartile for racial and ethnic diversity are 35% more likely to have financials returns above respective industry medians
- Certain industries perform better on gender diversity and other industries on ethnic and racial diversity. No industry or company is in the upper quartile on both dimensions
- Supportive LGBTQ policies led to improved staff health outcomes, increased job satisfaction and greater job commitment. All significant contributors to employee productivity
Our business strives to ensure that unconscious bias does not impact the quality of the coaching relationship. We do this through using a combination of defined processes, removing the opportunity for bias to be expressed, and implementing technologies that remove any implicit bias. Executive Science actively supports and coaches your company and its leaders in how to confront and deal with their own bias, without judgement.
Executive Science's coaching techniques have been formulated with a clear view to understand the coachee as a whole person. This is across their cultural, cognitive, sexual orientation, gender and professional persona, and how these impact them within the organisation in which they work. This empowers those we coach, reacting more sensitively, accurately and effectively improving their performance.
Executive Science is committed to ensuring that we are representative of the society in which we work, and equality is an issue close to our founder's heart. Our coaches come from a range of backgrounds and demographics inclusive of Black, Asian, Caucasian, male, female, gay, bi-sexual and dyslexic people ensuring we can truly connect with your people and the realities they face.
