Inclusive Leader's Playbook cover and pages

At Trane Technologies, we are using The Work of the Inclusive Leader to lay a foundation of what it means to lead effectively. We created a bite-sized learning module and provided the Inclusive Leader Playbook as a tool for leaders to use as they practice leading inclusively. We’ve also generated meaningful conversations throughout the organization based on the model and the playbook. These conversations are helping minds to shift and actions to change. —Tara Cargle Ashcraft, Diversity & Inclusion Leader, Trane Technologies
