A "profound" (Cynt Marshall, CEO of the Dallas Mavericks), timely, must-have guide to understanding and overcoming bias in the workplace from the experts at FranklinCovey. Unconscious bias affects everyone. It can look like the disappointment of an HR professional when a candidate for a new position asks about maternity leave. It can look like preferring the application of an Ivy League graduate over one from a state school. It can look like assuming a man is more entitled to speak in a meeting than his female junior colleague.
Ideal for every manager who wants to understand and move past their own preconceived ideas, The Leader's Guide to Unconscious Bias is a "must-read" (Sylvia Acevedo, CEO, rocket scientist, STEM leader, and author) that explains that bias is the result of mental shortcuts, our likes and dislikes, and is a natural part of the human condition. And what we assume about each other and how we interact with one another has vast effects on our organizational success—especially in the workplace. This book teaches you how to overcome unconscious bias and provides more than thirty unique tools, such as a prep worksheet and a list of ways to reframe your unconscious thoughts.
According to the experts at FranklinCovey, your workplace can achieve its highest performance rate once you start to overcome your biases and allow your employees to be whole people. By recognizing bias, emphasizing empathy and curiosity, and making true understanding a priority in the workplace, we can unlock the potential of every person we encounter.
