What is Inclusive Intelligence?

Inclusive Intelligence is the meeting point of Emotional Intelligence and Inclusive Leadership. Its methodology is based on a series of interviews and years of detailed research conducted with team leaders and managers in a variety of global companies. We found a pattern in some leaders who naturally excelled at inclusive leadership even though they were unaware of it and unable to define it. This book describes the skills these leaders have in common and how they made inclusion part of their daily agenda and became role models through their incredible work.
