As a leader, have you taken the time to become fully aware of your own attitudes?

For example, do you stereotype the people you work with, as in:

  • All accountants are boring
  • All sales people dress well
  • All bankers are evil etc.

If this is happening and you don’t even realize it, then it may be time to learn about your own ‘unconscious bias’.

And in episode #130 on the Meeting Leadership Podcast we are fortunate to have expert Leo Wong to help us all learn about our own unconscious bias. Not only is Leo an Assistant Professor at MacEwan University, but he also helps to run the Social Innovation Institute. So Leo has to help a wide variety of stakeholders come together to solve complex problems. One of the key ingredients that he uses to make these efforts successful is to help everyone understand that they may have some deep-seeded attitudes that could be helpful or harmful.

So get out your pens and a thick pad of paper, because you’ll want to take a lot of notes as you listen to this informative episode!
