How to O.P.E.N Up Your Organisation: An Innovative and Inclusive Leadership Model

21/09/2023 - From 19h30
Registration mandatory

Diversity. Equality. Equity. Inclusion. Inclusiveness. From a “nice to have” to a “must-have”, those topics are nowadays fashionable. If people seem convinced of their benefits, not everyone is aware of their full potential. Even then, the emphasis is on including “minorities” but what about the profiles?

Ihsane Haouach strives to achieve diversity that is not readily apparent at first glance. Using her experience in change management and societal challenges, she developed an innovative model for inclusive leadership.

Because her appearance does not satisfy everyone, she always decided that this would not define her. This is probably why she looks beyond appearances, and why over time she has developed a model to help you work together, no matter where you come from or where you’re going.

Ihsane encourages people to be Open to other viewpoints; resolve difficulties with Patience; feel Empathy for stakeholders; and find a safe space to be Natural. O.P.E.N. for Openness, Patience, Empathy, Natural.

Through facts, illustrated concepts, and real-life examples, this session will help you assess your management style and confront your realities. You just need to register and participate with an open mind!
