What you will learn:

When ‘rock-star’ bias goes unchecked, we unintentionally waste the diverse intelligence of employees, particularly from underrepresented populations. 'Rock-star bias' is a cognitive bias, and refers to the tendency for the observation of one specific trait such as charisma or great public speaking skills to positively influence our opinions of their abilities in unrelated areas such as people management, technical skills etc.

In this highly interactive session, you will learn the key steps of a systemic approach to interrupting 'rock-star' bias in your company.
You will learn:

1) How you can take intentional steps to leverage diverse leadership strengths of direct reports 2) How to begin to integrate more of a coaching approach rather than a traditional approach to management, 3) How to be an interrupter and actively contribute to creating cultures of profound inclusiveness at work
