As part of our work in challenging the status quo through continuous learning, inclusive leadership and purposeful teamwork, we have the greatest honor partnering with a new client, Marietta High School (MHS) in the metro Atlanta area, as they demonstrate their commitment to work for justice, disrupt inequity, understand and appreciate diversity, and improve inclusion.
We all have a trigger that can prompt us to act in a childish, unbecoming, rude or even hostile way for that matter. Feeling a loss of control over a situation, dealing with giving or receiving challenging feedback, overwhelmed by the sheer amount of work ahead. For me, one of my triggers is what I consider “insufficient think time” to process my thoughts and experiences. Admittedly, I tend to appreciate time to think (read overanalyzing, sometimes to the point of analysis paralysis.) Generally, I consider myself self-aware enough to do a decent job of managing my emotions and reactions around this stress trigger of mine.
Have you ever wondered what happens at the intersection of bias and culture? We just wrapped up a project with one of our clients and we found ourselves pondering over this theme yet again. Over the course of the last decade working with organizations across multiple industries, one of the issues most organizations continue to grapple with is 'culture.'
