How the journey looks like

BELONG model for inclusive leaders


Brave space

We empower leaders to create environments where taking risks and engaging in authentic conversations are the norms. This involves establishing a safe space for open and respectful dialogue on challenging issues.


Emotional agility

Coined by Susan David, emotional agility is “being flexible with our thoughts and feelings so that we can respond to everyday situations in an optimal way.” Emotions are neither good or bad, they act as signposts.



We focus on cultivating the skill of active listening in leaders. This transcends mere auditory processing to encompass understanding the context, emotions, and the unspoken nuances in communication.



Central to our training is the use of inclusive language. “Our” signifies the importance of language that unites and includes, recognizing the collective contribution and value of all team members.



Leaders are trained to be observant, to be aware of their own biases, team dynamics, and the implications of their decisions; to express gratitude and appreciation. This awareness is crucial for making informed, inclusive choices.


Good at repair

Leaders are human beings who, even with the best intentions, make mistakes. This part of the model reminds them of the importance of being open to mistakes, acknowledging them and learning from them.

The art of communication is the language of leadership.

What they say

Chared's work on belonging provides evidence that many of the softer aspects of internal comms - like good onboarding and welcoming people - makes a tangible difference in how engaged people feel at work.

It was great to be interviewed by Chared on her research on belonging at work. It was also wonderful to see how she has organized her findings into a useful tool such as the ACES framework.
