Exploring Unconscious Bias is one of the foundation elements of the RoCaro offer. We understand the importance of self-awareness to build inclusive leadership competence and unconscious bias is one of the ways that our leadership academy supports businesses and individuals in this area.
We encourage organisations to introduce unconscious bias testing for their people managers and influential decision makers. This testing can be supplemented with group or individual debrief and training sessions which are developed specifically for each client and their needs.
We also recognise that unconscious bias operates at an individual level and we recommend three steps required to beat bias:
- Recognise your biases. Are you making decisions that may be impacted by bias? To help you understand whether you are operating from a place of bias we offer the Implicitly test. This simple online test allows you to identify the extent to which you are likely to be making biased decisions in a range of areas including gender, ethnicity, age and sexual orientation.
- Explore your biases. Once you have armed yourself with the knowledge of where bias may be creeping into your decision-making, it is vital to explore what the origins and causes of the biases may be. Talk to an objective third party about it. This may be a member of your family, a friend or trusted colleague. Alternatively, RoCaro can offer you specialised coaching to identify the root of your biases and identify ways to manage them and minimise their impact on your decision-making.
- Make mindful decisions. Consider how and when you make decisions and what mechanisms you can put in place to ensure your decisions are objective and fair. Avoid making decisions when emotional or tired as these two states will reduce your objectivity.
