Blindsided: Uncovering, Understanding and Managing Bias

Is your organization having a hard time attracting and keeping the right kind of talent?

Originally designed for a top law enforcement agency, our unconscious bias training helps leaders and HR professionals create and maintain truly inclusive, engaged work cultures. Better yet, it also helps your employees make smarter decisions and take more innovative approaches to problem solving.

Unconscious bias training that works

We cannot change what we don’t understand or, worse yet, don’t acknowledge. At a time in our history when the topics of racism, privilege and inequality have been thrust into the spotlight of our national (and global) awareness, helping your leaders and staff understand the impact of unconscious bias on their behaviors and actions is critical. Even more important is being able to equip them with the insights and tools they need to spot and challenge the myriad of ways that bias gets in the way of creating truly inclusive, engaged and innovative work cultures. That’s what our team does better than any other training provider in the world. Period.

Having biases isn’t about your character. It doesn’t make you a racist, sexist, homophobe or any other kind of “-ist.” It just makes you a human being. By creating a learning environment that is emotionally safe, we make it easy and compelling for your team members to let their guard down and explore the many ways our brains have learned to play favorites…and the damage that can do. They then learn easy to apply techniques for spotting, discussing and minimizing the negative impact of biases in your organization going forward.

Our goal? Helping your team become more inclusive & innovative

What if we could help you create a work culture that welcomes new people, new ideas and new ways of thinking? A culture where team members genuinely care for and have each other’s backs as they relentlessly focus on delighting your customers? How much easier would it be for you to not only attract, but keep the very best talent available? How about keeping and winning the very best customers in your markets? That’s what we do. Call or email us today to learn more about our approach.

Blindsided: Uncovering, Understanding and Managing Bias

“Neuroscience has shown that people can identify another person’s apparent race, gender and age in a matter of milliseconds. In this blink of an eye, a complex network of stereotypes, emotional prejudices and behavioral impulses activates.”
