Adjusting your Mirrors and Managing your Blind Spots workshop
Are you an inclusive leader?
- Do you know the difference between a good leader and an inclusive leader?
- Can you trust your brain to make quality decisions?
- Can you overcome your unconscious biases and blind spots?
- Do you recognize the impact of your Affinity biases?
- Are you aware of the impact unconscious bias has on productivity, employee engagement and innovation/creativity?
- Do you realize that your unconscious biases are a liability for client relationships?
- Do you understand the wasted energy expended to “cover” or “fit in” when you feel you are not included?
- Do you know if implicit biases can be unlearned?
Being inclusive seems like an obvious and easy thing to do and yet we continue to face significant challenges on our journey towards embedding inclusion in our organizations. Employees can feel excluded for a myriad of reasons – ranging from the small and seemingly insignificant gesture or glance by a Senior Partner, to bigger issues such as being overlooked for a promotion. Well intentioned people make business decisions every day that favor some individuals or groups more than others. The quality of our day to day business decisions is impacted by our propensity for affinity bias, our blind spots and unconscious biases and this in turn plays a part in how inclusive we are individually and collectively perceived to be.
Workshop Learning Objectives:
- Understand the distinction between a good leader and an inclusive leader
- Identify barriers and obstacles that prohibit inclusiveness
- Understand the role unconscious bias plays in day to day decision making
- Improve client relationships by having a deeper understanding of unconscious bias
- Identify individual and institutional barriers to equity and fairness
- Ensure leaders and Business Units become aware of how their unconscious biases are impacting clients and people in their organization
- Understand what factors might impede maintaining an inclusive workplace culture
- Motivate leaders on the importance of creating an inclusive workplace where they can leverage the competitive advantage a diverse talent pool has to offer
Custom Design considerations:
We custom design our workshops (and Keynotes) by taking time in an iterative and collaborative process to work closely with you to ensure we meet the needs of your organization and your leaders.
We use extensive global research from Human Facets Unconscious Bias and Inclusion assessment results. These results are gathered from a variety of industries, geographies and diverse groups and add rich and compelling measurements to the business case for inclusion.
We also use an ARS Audience Response system to poll live data from the group throughout the workshop and will custom design the questions to ensure the message is on target for your leaders/workshop participants.
