Leaders often think that they have to be strong, fearless, always right and never fail. This may sound like the traditional idea of leadership, however, in order to foster a healthy workplace culture and a safe space for team members, leaders need to demonstrate empathy and vulnerability instead. This shows their team a healthy example of how to learn from failure and mistakes, how to face fear and persevere and how to listen and give space to others.

Not every disability is visible, and in reality, up to 70% of all disabilities can be ‘not visible’ or ‘hidden’. Around 14 million people in the UK live with some form of disability, so the likelihood is that you know at least one person living with a hidden disability, whether you are aware or not. This webinar aims to address this issue and how to approach it from an inclusion perspective in the workplace.
