15th January 2019 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am| Free
Most leaders and managers now understand that they are biased – they are human beings after all! They have bought into the critical importance that they must demonstrate inclusive leadership skills and manage the impact of their biases on the range of different selection decisions they make every day.
But believing we do it and actually doing it, are very different things. Obstacles lay in our path – deadlines, client demands, knowing the way someone wants it. We need help. HR and L&D professionals play a critical role in putting interruptions in place and challenging leaders’ decisions. Creating an environment where leaders trust this challenge and see it as their “first line of defence” will translate the aspiration into a reality. This practical and discussion based session explores effective techniques for challenge and will equip you to be a credible and trusted first line of defence.
