Description

WARNING: This course is not for everyone. You should only consider this course if you want to expand your mind, reveal and overcome unconscious bias, and improve relationships, productivity, morale and diversity in every area of work and life. If that is you, then keep reading.


Do you ever feel like you judge people too fast?

You see them in the grocery store or during an interview and your mind lights up like fireworks. They’re too fat, too skinny, too tall, too short, too ugly, too pretty, too clean, too inked, too tough, too weak, too stupid, too smart, too rich, too poor, too old, too young.

Everyone has those thoughts.

The problem is they block you from discovering who that person really is. They stop you from asking yourself what they might be like on the inside. So you avoid them. You skip them for jobs. You never ask about their story and you miss out on valuable relationships.

And the bigger problem is you only engage with those who fit your idea of how a person “should” be. So you create a circle of influence around you that lacks diversity, open communication, and growth. All of that holds you back in untold ways in business and life.


You Can’t Change Other People But You CAN Change Yourself

Your instincts never change, and you can’t force others to be different either. But that doesn’t mean you can’t adjust your own habits to lift yourself up to new horizons where you can see the world, and other people from different and more useful perspectives.

With a bit of effort and minor adjustments, you can begin to realize old, ineffective thought patterns and replace them with new, more useful tools and behaviors.


What Are Unconscious Biases?

Unconscious biases are perspectives you hold that form automatically based on a variety of information sources from the world around you.

They’re kind of like what happens when someone throws a ball at your face. Your hands automatically fly up to protect your head. Unconscious biases are a type of automatic, instinctual self-defense mechanism as well.

When you see someone with tattoos and you judge them as “bad” or “trouble,” you might avoid them because your bias told you they’re no good. Sometimes that judgment might be right. But what about when it isn’t?

What if that person is the nicest, friendliest, most loyal and trustworthy human on the planet? What if they hold the key to the biggest opportunity of your life? Too bad. You will never know, because you judged them incorrectly and you did it automatically.


Is This a Corporate Problem Too?

Unconscious bias is a problem for everyone, and when it enters the workplace, it digs a pit of despair for businesses. Human Resources, recruiters, and anyone who hires or works together will likely face the challenges of unconscious bias.

The problem is, it leads to weakness in the business. It’s like building a castle on a foundation of toothpicks. Without accounting for unconscious bias, you end up with a workforce made of people who were judged “good enough” based on shallow social cues, rather than the value they can actually provide.

Ultimately, you create an environment that lacks diversity, innovation, and any kind of creative thought at all. In this course, I’ll show you how and when to say, “So what?” so you can see beyond those biases to find, recruit and grow the best team and company possible!


What Will You Learn in this Course?

In this course, my goal is to help you begin to recognize different kinds of biases in your life. Together, we will review types of biases most people don’t know exist. We will also work to help you overcome those biases in your own life so you gain perspective, insight and the ability to make conscious choices that serve you better.


Inside You Will Discover:

  • A Powerful Way to Test Your Unconscious Bias to Reveal Your Hidden Weaknesses

  • Several Sneaky Unconscious Biases that Wreak Havoc on Every Decision in Life

  • The Most Devastating Impacts of Bias in Your Personal & Professional Development

  • Simple, Profound Exercises to Help You Reframe Your Perspective Overnight

  • Tools to Help You Communicate More Clearly, Improve Productivity and Diversity

  • How to Create Your Own Story and an Action Plan for Exponential Change
