Intrinsic inclusion is ‘The act of integrating the differences of a group of people into conversations, decisions and team activities. These differences may include traditional diversity considerations such as gender, age, disability, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity. However, they should also take into account the intrinsic differences of personality, performance strengths, opinions and approach which are a result of that diversity.’ (France 2018).
To achieve this, teams need inclusive leaders who have effective facilitation skills and teams who have significant group process skills. To read more about how to develop these skills take a look at our pages on Leaders and Teams.
