Moving Beyond Unconscious Bias



Is it time to challenge our unconscious bias? Can we override our primal brain and change our behavior? Yes, we can!

  • Do you have a very clear “why”?
  • Learn to be mindful of the common ground between all people and our universal human needs
  • Know how to draw on the whole brain (higher, cortical areas) to process diversity
  • Be willing to self reflect and become self-aware around discomfort
  • Develop plans, strategies, and behaviors – this way you can be prepared and proactive in the workplace

Learn the NOW Leadership Four C’s – these 4 human needs are universal 

  • Connection
  • Creativity
  • Confidence
  • Cooperation

Often the negative side of these attributes is driven by an unhealthy or habitual belief around “Competition or Dominance”. Acknowledging that we all have these same needs can help us to recognize we are the same even though we look different and have learnt different ways of operating in the world.

The NOW approach to Collective Visioning and Social Synergy

The Value and Challenge of Diversity – The diversity makes the whole – because we are uncomfortable with the unfamiliar, we try to make it the same and if it doesn’t conform we make it wrong to make it go away. And its’ not done consciously.

“If you are different to me – perhaps you don’t understand me?”

We each carry a desire to be understood and to belong – and so we have a fear of not being understood and not belonging. This is at the heart of our challenges with communicating across differences – for people in the minority and the majority group – but the stakes can be higher for people in the minority.

So, how do we remain ourselves to allow other people to be themselves?

  • How can we build trust?
  • How quickly can we build trust?
  • Getting to know another person’s story helps to build trust.
