The essential resource for new managers who want to foster a safe, inclusive, and productive space for their teams.

Being an inclusive manager boils down to finding ways to balance power and love day-to-day. When do we prioritize the needs of an individual employee over that of the whole team? When do we hold firm that what the team needs is more important than what the individual wants? How do we ensure that we uphold one person’s boundaries without compromising another’s? How do we live up to the promises we make to ourselves and to each other, all while driving results and hitting our earnings targets?

Alida Miranda-Wolff has worked with hundreds of organizations to help them create cultures of belonging and successful DEI initiatives, which means she knows the common pitfalls to avoid and action items required to make DEI work. In this practical guide, she shares both the mindset and actions required for new managers to build inclusive teams. This one-of-a-kind guide will:

  • Help you define your inclusive management style.
  • Provide practical guidance on how to create a healthy culture on your teams through equitable practices.
  • Teach you the basics of inclusive language.
  • Offer guidance on how to give and receive feedback.
  • Help you manage identity-based conflict.
