Unconscious Bias: How the Best Leaders Are Rethinking Thinking
As humans, we tend to look at the world and those around us through our own lenses, influenced by geography, upbringing, education and many other factors. This bias, both conscious and unconscious, impacts employee engagement, attrition and the bottom line.
Good intentions and thoughtful decisions don't always lead to fair and inclusive outcomes. Through experiential learning, participants test and reflect on their own unconscious biases, recognize opportunities, have a chance to practice inclusive leadership skills, and learn tools to reframe thinking and behaviors in more positive and practical ways.
What You Get
