What Do Participants Have to Say About Part 2: Discover Your Inclusive Leadership Potential

"I loved the sequence of the content of the course and the discussion forum. After each module I found I was raising questions that the following modules had already been set up to answer. One of the thing that will stick with me is about being inclusive even when I am stuck. When I am faced with a crisis, argument, commotion or distraction from implementing a plan. Instead of asking, what should I do, I will ask, What CAN WE DO!!! (Temo Sasau, Advocate, Fiji Islands, South Pacific).

"As a nonviolent communication practitioner and facilitator, I wanted to find new skills and perspectives for working in environments where basic needs are not met or there are belief systems that prevent compassion. I really enjoyed how building communities that support each other is a medicine for discrimination and injustice. I opened my vision of what a leader is and what inclusive leadership can do to empower people and bring together differences." Claudia Sanchez, Full Communication Practitioner and Facilitator, Colombia).

 “I am so grateful for this top-notch course that the world needs more of.  How about if each and every person in areas such as Uganda undertook a basic course in understanding inclusiveness? Would we learn not to be harsh while connecting with different people? Would this lead to a society where everyone is welcomed?”  (Joanita Babirye, Founder and Director, Rainbow Smiles Foundation, Uganda)

"Imagine the world where all people feel they have a role in leadership; leading, learning, and living in a whole new way! I am grateful for the helpful tools this course has given me.” (Lynn Smith, Farmer, Program Leader, Musician, BC, Canada)

"I have learned the Importance of compassionate  listening and slowing down to the pace of wisdom. Responding to others' comments in a more appreciative and respectful way, without bias enhances healthy conversation." (Tosin Taiwo, Founder, Street2School Initiative, Nigeria).

I have re-established networking and relaxing as regular health practices.” (Lindsay Beal, Spider's Eye, a home-based, creative arts business in BC, Canada).

As a result of this course, my relationship with my colleagues is far better. I am getting positive responses by learning to be a good listener which leads me to speak with confidence and humility and avoid discrimination of any kind in my relationships with people."(Jude Otago, Administrator and Manager, Nigeria).

"As an advocate and leader in a few key groups within my community, and organization, which needs to be inclusive in its approach, I signed up to this course because I wanted to find out what I needed as a leader to make my approach more inclusive. What I discovered was that to be inclusive, not only do I need to know and be conscious about how I relate to people, how to communicate  better with them but also to get the approval and endorsement of the space that I am showing up in - including nature – to provide an atmosphere that will guide my role to be inclusive to other individuals and groups." (Temo Sasau, Advocate, Fiji Islands, South Pacific).

"My goal was to form a bond to heal the world of hate, discrimination and violence through love, kindness and affection. I’ve been inspired!
