Conflict Management

Conflict happens, whether we want it to or not. Most of us have a strong, visceral reaction to conflict, including (but not limited to) fear, avoidance, excitement and/or dread. However, when you boil it down, conflict is just when one person's desires are different from another person's desires. It's the emotions that conflict evokes that can make situations seem explosive.

The Science of Bias

Bias—a tendency to believe that some people and ideas are better than others—wreaks havoc in the workplace. It keeps women and people of color out of the boardroom, limits job opportunities, prevents organizations from the true monetary and cultural benefits of a diverse workforce, makes it difficult for Baby Boomers to get tech jobs, and more. It’s easy to identify and limit bias when it’s over, but that’s not always the case. Sometimes bias is completely unconscious.
