The Case For A More Human Leadership Model

Bruno Guicardi is President of CI&T, the digital solutions partner driving lean digital transformation for the world’s biggest brands.

Best-selling author Gary Hamel recently shared some stats that represent a startling reality: “Only one in five employees believe their opinions matter at work … and one in 11 say they can influence important decisions.”

Much has been said about employee empowerment and a work environment that’s more inclusive, but the discussion tends to center on talent attraction and retention as if this was only an HR issue. My provocation in this article is that we should look at empowerment in the workplace as our best bet to tackle the ever-increasing unpredictability in the business environment and to thrive as a business.

The 20th-century formula to solving problems in which companies analyzed the situation, broke it down and came up with a detailed plan doesn’t work anymore. In the

How bold leadership can equalize the future of work for BIPOC

Technology, an industry that promises innovation and meritocracy, is at a moment of reckoning. Major technology companies have come under fire from elected officials, social justice leaders, and the general public for neglecting important social responsibilities in both external and internal operations, largely by allowing racism to run rampant on social platforms and by creating toxic, homogeneous work environments that deter many from pursuing a career in the field or advancing.

This backlash is representative of a longstanding issue in Silicon Valley and in other technology hubs, where women and people of color—specifically women of color—are often denied jobs for which they’re qualified or are passed up for promotion and leadership opportunities due to unconscious or conscious bias. The impact of this exclusion is devastating, leaving not just individuals but families and communities behind, and forcing a ripple effect through the entire economy.

The solution? Bold leadership from the public

We women of the Texas House want a fair shot at leadership positions in the next Legislature

This election cycle more women are running for the Texas House than ever before and if, as predicted, many of them win, there will be more women holding office in the Texas House than at any time in history. The majority of those women will be Democrats.

The Texas Legislature has never been a model of gender inclusion. There have only, ever, been 172 women elected to the Texas Legislature in history compared to more than 5,435 men. There has never been a woman speaker of the house.

No matter who becomes the next speaker, regardless of gender or party, it is long past time that women legislators fully partake in the power of that office by receiving a proportional number of leadership positions, chairs of committees and key committee appointments. With very few exceptions, leadership positions in the Texas House are not reflective of the makeup of women in
