About the Author
Read an Excerpt
In some form we all lead, whether we are leading others or we are the leaders of our own individual lives.
Conscious leaders play a huge role in organizations, and can act as catalysts for growth. Conscious leaders are naturally inclusive and as a result, the organization benefits from the utilization of the rich and varied talents of the workforce. But each leader must do the work themselves to become more inclusive; leadership starts with you.
Because of the idea that each individual is so important to creating environments that are successful, high performing and inclusive, this book is a guidebook for making a difference---one person at a time. We start with ourselves first. If we continue to address the ways we interact with our teams and with the world at large, we can become a model for others who look to achieve their own goals. Together we will go over simple steps for bringing greater consciousness into your leadership. This book will look deeper into what being inclusive means, talk about the differences between misconceptions and reality, and what gets in the way of becoming an empowering and engaging leader working with an energized, productive team.
To what extent do our biases without our awareness or conscious control shape our likes and dislikes, our judgments about people’s character, abilities, and potential? This is important information for anyone in leadership. Conscious leaders are committed to becoming aware of their biases and exploring their impact on decision-making, inclusion, strategy and development. As much as possible, we want conscious intentions to guide our decisions. As we become aware of our unconscious biases, we can take steps to align our behavior with these conscious intentions.
When I speak of unconscious bias, I mean beliefs, judgments and automatic thought processes that are unknown, submerged, hidden from view. They are outside of our awareness. Our goal in becoming self-aware is to shine a light to bring these unconscious beliefs and processes to the surface, into our conscious awareness.
This also applies to development programs, succession planning, business development and advancement. If you are responsible for setting policies and procedures and communicating internally in your organization as well as externally, you will especially benefit from a dispassionate look at the source of the decisions you make to determine if potential bias contributes to the decisions. We want conscious choices to be the foundation of our practices.
