When considering the challenges and complexities facing today’s leaders, it stands to reason that the job of a leader is more difficult than ever. In addition to COVID-19 and financial pressures, the past year has also brought issues of social concern and racial inequity to the forefront of challenges leaders must navigate. Although there is swelling interest in reducing social and financial disparities, there are barriers and obstacles to creating a more harmonious community landscape. Part of the solution rests in structural approaches leaders can apply to overcome the perils of unconscious bias.

The path to sustained success is paved by developing leaders through the use of objective leadership frameworks (OLFs). OLFs provide leaders with tools to improve their effectiveness in managing complexity. Incorporating these frameworks enhance individual, leader and organizational performance while contributing to shared celebrated success.

This live, online session will equip participants to apply Situational Leadership® as a tool to combat the damaging effects of unconscious bias.
