The SRQ in Leadership

The SRQ is being used by training professionals on leadership development programmes to help leaders explore the impact they are having on others through their leadership interactions. Here, they discover the behavioural and attitudinal changes that enable them to inspire and influence others effectively, to manage their own energy and reduce the impact of stress, and to get clear and focused so that they manage expectations and conflict well, and personally perform at a higher level.

"The greatest impact The SRQ has on delegates is its 360 feedback aspect. This highlights gaps in perception and allows delegates to plan how to deal with this, again in a non-judgmental way. Many interpersonal issues within teams have been resolved as a result."  UK Health Service training professional

Non-judgment of self and others has always been the central message of my work as an Emotional Intelligence thought leader, coach and facilitator. Latterly my work has brought me to the corporate HR arena where I have worked to put dignity and care at the heart of people strategy. This requires a holistic approach to cultural change by aligning transformational leadership competencies, inclusive practices and people development strategies with non-judgmental people systems.

While studying to become a certified professional diversity coach, I mapped out a model for building diverse, inclusive and equitable workplaces, by aligning the principles and language of ED&I with my core messaging around equality, non-judgment, dignity, care and ‘the leadership privilege’.

The principle concepts of this model are that:

1. Workplace cultures that deeply value, respect and leverage how people are different, truly reap the benefits of diversity – the sponsor of this aspect is the Executive team;

2. People strategy and systems built on the principle of dignity lead to fairness and equity – the sponsor of this aspect is HR;

3. Teams that care about each other and that respect each member’s uniqueness, build a sense of belonging which leads to inclusion – the sponsor of this aspect is the team’s leader.

My three-sided model – the Equity, Diversity & Inclusion pyramid – provides a visual of how the three aspects need to be happening concurrently.

For example, a workplace will not be truly equitable and inclusive if leaders are developed so that they build inclusive teams, yet they have to work with judgmental performance and talent management processes that ‘rate’ employees or put them in boxes based on bias.
