The Leader’s Guide to Unconscious Bias
by Pamela Fuller & Mark Murphy

Bias is the result of mental shortcuts, our likes and dislikes, and is a natural part of the human condition. According to the experts at FranklinCovey, your workplace can achieve its highest performance rate once you start to overcome your biases and allow your employees to be whole people. By recognizing bias, emphasizing empathy and curiosity, and making true understanding a priority in the workplace, the authors assert that you can unlock the potential of every person you encounter.
