Building more vibrant and intention partnerships across perceived difference helps interrupt unconscious bias.
Like fish in water, many well-intentioned leaders do not see the water (white male culture) they swim in. So their unconscious incompetence (I don’t know what I don’t know) does not come from a lack of intelligence or bad intention. It comes from I’m unaware about much of what influences and guides how I make decisions and take action. So leaders end up thinking that everybody is just like them. That their actions and decisions are unbiased. Only when leaders fully see the water they swim in, do they realize they have culture with inherent privileges. And that this culture impacts and influences how they lead. We help courageous leaders see these conditions and liberate their ability to treat people as they want to be treated. As a result, they begin to lead more inclusively and effectively.
