Event Description:

Participants will walk away with beginner-level ability to recognize, surface, and discuss bias as it shows up in various ways – recruiting, team meetings, performance reviews, interviewing, etc – and are able to build upon the conversations in the class by recognizing common language.

Since everyone on the planet has bias, the program doesn’t target any one person or one type of solution – it inspires curiosity, empathy, and a sense of ownership that even with very small changes, significant personal and organizational shifts are possible.

Ways to recognize bias in the workplace and make better decisions / have better relationships with the people they work with as a result of this new level of awareness.                                   

What to cover

  1. An overview of Diversity, Inclusion, Stereotypes and Implicit/Unconscious Bias and how they all impact the experiences we have not only at work but in life outside work, too.
  2. An in-depth review of three types of bias that research shows exist in all organizations, in which research documenting the bias is explored, the impact of the bias is discussed and specific actions to counteract the bias are discussed:
    1. Performance Bias – a bias that shows that majority groups are held to less rigorous standards and that minority groups are held to more rigorous standards. This bias is explored both from the perspective of gender and race.
    2. b. Performance Attribution Bias – bias that impacts how we give credit or blame when comparing contributions made by men and women working together on tasks. Also covered is self- attribution bias, which occurs when women give themselves less credit for successful outcomes and more blame for failure.
    3. c. Competence/Likeability Tradeoff – a bias that favors men, where competence and likeability are positively correlated attributes and negatively impacts women as competence and likeability are negatively correlated attributes.
  3. Case studies / discussions. Studies are based on real-world examples and are customizable, if desired, to client specific examples.
  4. 4. A clear call-to-action to make individual/small changes that collectively add up to significant impact.



Speaker Details:


Brooks E. Scott


I’ve always been the one that people go to when they need to talk about how to handle difficult situations. Whether I was working as a VP in the private sector building diverse teams from scratch, the lead on high-level security teams, a state trooper, a 5th grade teacher, or an executive coach, I realized that while I was good at what I was doing, everything I did had a singular focus: radical connection and communication." 

Now, as a professionally trained and certified executive

coach through CTI (Coaches Training Institute), Brooks

specializes in Co-Active Coaching so you or your team

can explore your fullest and most authentic potential


Active and deep listening

Authentic encouragement

Speaking honest truths

Asking the right questions

Brooks creates the kind of safe space that fast-tracks

authentic conversations and radical connection in

whatever kind of dynamic he is working with. That is his

specialty, his gift, and why he chooses to be an

executive coach.
