How to consciously include all others

Creating a culture of openness on the job starts with intentionally including others, S. Chris Edmonds writes. He explains how.

  • Don’t divide. When you divide your team into favorites, or insider and outsider groups, your team on the outside will feel excluded, unvalued and mistrusted.
  • Actively communicate. The key to inclusion is to communicate with all members of your team. Repeat the key concepts at least three times, using different formats. Make a point to visit each team member regularly.
  • Be proactive. Encourage your team to be proactive and ask questions. Let them schedule time with you each week to sit down and discuss goals or receive feedback.
