In today’s culturally and age-diverse workplace, the need to feel connected to others and accepted as a group member is more important than ever. If leaders are to not only survive, but thrive in this new era of innovation and disruption, it is essential they learn to embrace these changes and foster a culture of belonging.

These shifts are commonplace in sport and, if done well, can leave your culture and performance in a better place.
