Ep #171: The Corporate Badass Way to Recognizing and Overcoming Bias at Work

Very early on in my executive coaching career, I began doing trainings around unconscious bias.

The kind of bias that we are usually completely unaware that we are committing.

And the kind of bias that can be so subtle and so hard to put your finger on.

And I taught my students how to begin to recognize and notice these biases in themselves so they could counteract their biases by choosing to do something different.

And that makes total sense when you are the biased person.

But what do you do when you are on the receiving end of that bias?

Well, you can get frustrated or shut down.

Or you could also choose to do something different.

So in this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, I’ll show you the corporate badass way of noticing bias, making better choices for how to deal with it, and thriving in your career in the face of it.

Let’s get started.
