Recognizing and Overcoming Unconscious Bias – October 25

We are all impacted by unconscious bias - learned stereotypes that are often automatic and unintentional, yet deeply ingrained within our beliefs. When left unchecked, unconscious biases can affect our behavior, workplace decision making and how we interact and treat one another. Biased decisions can also negatively impact an organization’s ability to recruit and retain a diverse workforce, and in some cases, lead to discriminatory behavior. Fortunately, when we proactively acknowledge and understand our personal and unconscious biases, we can avoid acting upon them and make better, more informed and equitable decisions. During this 3-hour interactive seminar for individuals, teams, management, HR and business owners a like, learn what unconscious bias is, how to recognize its role in decision-making and how to overcome these biases in your professional and personal life.

Disagreeing with a senior level colleague – November 8

Your boss is excited about a new initiative that you think is doomed to fail. Your senior colleague proposes a project timeline you worry is unrealistic. It’s tempting to just go along with it and not raise concerns. After all, that can be easier than speaking up. How do you decide when it’s worth saying something? And if you do speak up, what should you say? In this session, learn how to assess if voicing your disagreement with someone who has more seniority and decision-making authority than you is the right course of action (it often is!), and how to do it in ways most likely to give you the best results. Gain tips on how to lay the groundwork in these critical relationships so that disagreeing is easier to do, despite the power dynamic.
