Episode 40 | Unconscious Bias and Belonging
Consultant at Cook Ross & Adjunct Professor at William James College
In this episode, Bart Bailey takes us on a journey to broaden our understanding of tribal behavior and our need to connect with folks like us. According to Bart, it’s natural and that need is strongly tied to our childhood stories. That said, being mindful about what we are thinking and feeling, sets us up for true awareness and options regarding impact and choices. As leaders, we hold the responsibility to foster a safe climate for people of all backgrounds to thrive.
With more than two decades of management, supervisory, and training experience, Bart Bailey has dedicated his professional career to helping others overcome obstacles.
