Embracing individuality

Sharon HealySharon Healy, chief people and culture officer, Grant Thornton Canada LLP, on how organisations, leaders and individuals all need to embrace change.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As organisations, we need to strive to create an inclusive environment where each colleague is valued because of their unique difference. As leaders, it’s critical that we develop the capability to tap into and unleash individual talent.

If we focus on groups and difference, we lose the opportunity to optimise the diverse strengths that everyone brings. As individuals, it’s important to embrace our uniqueness, courageously ask for what we want and create opportunities to contribute/play to our strengths.
