Globalization, consumerism, legislation and human rights issues impact on workplace demographics, changing the very nature
thereof. It is of strategic importance to ensure that the benefits of diverse viewpoints and stakeholders are leveraged. However
the underlying worldviews of economists, business leaders and consultants are often informed from a Western paradigm and solutions
proposed and interventions facilitated are not integrated, integral, systemic or congruent with the containing environment
or ecology. In Inclusive Organizational Transformation, Dr Rica Viljoen acknowledges that diversity of thought presents both
gifts and challenges to leadership in multi-national organizations. The existential question with which an individual is confronted
impacts on his or her worldview. By continuously applying a specific worldview, certain gifts manifest. These are called Human
Niches. Here, Inclusivity is positioned as a radical transformational methodology with the purpose of unleashing the benefits
of engagement and diversity of thought. The process of Inclusivity enables organizations to optimize the gifts of and contributions
from a diverse workforce and unleash tacit knowledge. Case studies from Ghana, South Africa, and one where the same strategy
had to be implemented in Australia, Peru and Tanzania are included and insights gained from the dynamics observed are shared.
A synthesis of Inclusivity is presented in a model, meta-insights are derived and the prerequisites for Inclusivity on individual,
group and organizational domain are illustrated.
