PRIVATE, ONE-ON-ONE COMMUNICATION SKILLS - The key to face-to-face communication is building TRUST. The three elements of effective private communication are being
Prompt, Direct, and Respectful.

Beliefs, attitudes, or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions; and unlike explicit biases, those that we act on or are open about from a conscious level; our Implicit Biases exist from an unconscious state of mind.
Meaning, it is difficult to determine the reason for the belief, or even the source of why we believe the way we do.
If you would like to learn more about dealing with those hidden biases, contact us today. Visit our CONTACT US page and start the Leadership Development journey to New Levels of Leadership Excellence.
“How can I be aware of a bias that has been floating around in my mind for years?”
It is a matter of practicing the Art of Awareness.
All biases, even the most deeply sub-conscious ones, periodically toss up a clue to their presence in the form of a thought. It is our job to be aware of that thought and examine it to see what it tells us about our hidden beliefs.
This means we need to watch what we think - this is Leadership.
Consciously acknowledge your biases – maybe even write them down as a reminder of the subtle thoughts that can consume your mind.
Step back – or step away. Especially if you are in a leadership and decision making role.
Identify an accountability partner. Someone you trust and who will tell you the truth.
Expose yourself to different groups and cultures; or better yet, the person that you may have formed an unmerited bias against, spend some time getting to know that person.
Envision the possibility that your implicit biases can be seen by others. You will have less than 10 seconds to address your views or they will be permanently seared on your forehead.
