Optimizing Diverse Talent - Talent Management Course Bundle

Most people have stereotypes—simplified and generalized views of people from a particular group. They can be based on a wide variety of elements including gender, race, religion, or age. Due to social norms and political correctness, these tend to lie under the surface and people may not even be aware of them. But they still influence behavior. The process is automatic and very fast. In neuroscientific terms, making the connection between a person and a stereotype occurs within 300 milliseconds (less than a typical blink of an eye) of encountering that person. Because the conscious control is not there, responses can be prejudiced and socially inappropriate. Learn to examine your biases and assumptions.

What will this program help me do?
