The Leader’s Guide to Unconscious Bias: How To Reframe Bias, Cultivate Connection, and Create High-Performing Teams
It’s just a fact: we all have unconscious biases working in the background of our brains. These biases can help us navigate our complex world, but they can also derail our decision making, damage our relationships, and inhibit the performance of our teams.
Using the principle-centered, research-supported tactics in this book, leaders can learn to identify unconscious bias in themselves and others, cultivate connection in their teams, and choose courage to make progress. You’ll move beyond awareness into action across important inflection points like recruiting, engagement, and promotion. Now more than ever, leaders must master these skills to build high-performing teams and compete in a world that demands inclusion.
Listen, Learn and Engage
This week AT&T will once again engage in Days of Dialogue – a movement about listening, learning and engaging with others. It’s about joining in on the conversation and surrounding yourself with people who are different than you – talking openly in a safe, productive way about our backgrounds, experiences and challenges.
Leading in a Time of Crisis
At the recent D CEO Women’s Leadership Symposium, I had the pleasure of speaking to 600+ women, and several male allies, about leading in a time of crisis. Apropos in a time when several crises are converging: a global pandemic, economic recession, racial inequality, and social injustices, are those most top of mind.
United For Change
What we witnessed concerning the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery is shocking, terribly tragic, and unacceptable. These horrible events highlight the systemic racial injustice that has been working to tear us apart for centuries.
