As a leader, do you actively seek out different points of view? Or do your unconscious biases assume the same people will provide the innovative solutions you seek? Consider your unconscious biases, and then use a bias buster to bring your preference into the light.

In this episode…
Consider how to make your contribution count:

1.    Why does my bias exist?

      I have found that having diversity on a BOD is a wonderful opportunity to check my biases–as we work together for a common cause. And as you articulated—it starts with a conversation. I would add that being present is also a factor in uncovering/assessing ones biases. When I am thinking ahead as I speak with someone—thinking of my next point, or how I am right (!) it does not allow me to be present. Perhaps that is the 7 second pause…but sometimes I am using that time to think about me rather than about the other person’s contribution.

        Excellent point! And I couldn’t agree more. Being present is key in all communications. A matter of fact ‘listening’ effectively can’t be done unless you are present. I see them as one of the same – and yet such an important point to emphasise. If we all could be present, wouldn’t we be happier and be open to the possibilities? Thanks for sharing your critical perspective Susan!
