Publisher's Summary

A timely, must-have guide to understanding and overcoming bias in the workplace, from the experts at FranklinCovey.

Unconscious bias affects everyone. It can look like the disappointment of an HR professional when a candidate for a new position asks about maternity leave. It can look like preferring the application of an Ivy League graduate over one from a state school. It can look like assuming a man is more entitled to speak in a meeting than his female junior colleague. 

Ideal for every manager who wants to understand and move past their own preconceived ideas, The Leader’s Guide to Unconscious Bias explains that bias is the result of mental shortcuts, our likes and dislikes, and is a natural part of the human condition. And what we assume about each other and how we interact with one another has vast effects on our organizational success - especially in the workplace. Teaching you how to overcome unconscious bias, this book provides more than 30 unique tools, such as a list of ways to reframe your unconscious thoughts. 

According to the experts at FranklinCovey, your workplace can achieve its highest performance rate once you start to overcome your biases and allow your employees to be whole people. By recognizing bias, emphasizing empathy and curiosity, and making true understanding a priority in the workplace, we can unlock the potential of every person we encounter. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Key Reading for Next Gen Workforce

Anne, Pamela and Mark do an amazing job breaking down the layers of unconscious biases we face as leaders everyday. The simple and direct messaging used throughout the book is very helpful to me as a growing leader as I learn to navigate my biases and how to reframe my thought process so I can become a better leader especially with forever changing workforce landscape of next generations known as Gen Z and Gen Alpha entering the workforce. The books have great insight that can help leaders at all levels. Thank you three for a different perspective of how we can level up as leaders in times where diversity and inclusion is needed more than ever.

must read for all leaders

I really loved this book. I listened to it on audible so i did not complete and of the worksheets they reference. I think that part is really valuable. I think this is a must read book for all Leaders, Hiring Managers, and people who are to be involved in the selection and hiring process for their organizations.
