Building Beyond Bias™ Training

Having an open mind is the #1 indicator of a highly creative thinker as well as a highly culturally competent person. This two-hour training facilitates the mental development of identifying and dismantling prejudging mental blocks that inhibit open-mindedness and empathy.

This training focuses on unconscious bias training, which includes cultural bias, creative biases, and other cognitive biases that affect decision making, hiring, promoting, and building interpersonal relationships. We teach mental tools for leaders and team members to manage and adjust for biases, unconscious beliefs, and self-limiting creative restraints.

Eradicating Microaggressions in the Workplace

We desire for our people to thrive. Creativity thrives in an inclusive culture that values the whole individual and their many differences. When microaggressions, or Subtle Acts of Exclusion (SAE), are present, many employees feel disempowered and perform below their creative potential. This is costly for the employee and the organization. This training will support your employees with tools to take part in building a culture of inclusion and creativity.

Increasing Cultural Curiosity For Employee Success

If innovation is driven by creativity, then creativity is driven by curiosity. It is this same curiosity that is needed to develop intercultural competency. By implementing a consistent process of curious exploration, team members will engage ideas and people in a more complex and novel way. This is imperative for advancing Intercultural Creativity®. The primary method of increasing curiosity is utilizing observation skills and applying an advanced process of questioning.

Seeking information to fill gaps of knowledge through culturally respectful questioning and investigation will strengthen psychological safety, increase inclusivity, and reveal new possibilities for innovation.

Perspective Shifting for Leadership

The ability to perspective shift is needed for empathy, creativity, cultural competence, and innovation yet can be reduced as leaders advance higher in position. Few leaders invest time to develop this skill. Perspective-taking skills can improve through training and it activates the social brain network, which can also reduce implicit bias.

Our training uses situational and artistic methods to sharpen and develop the ability to perspective shift in professional environmental experiences and cultural experiences. Empathy skills are further developed and imagination exercises, such as ‘fictive learning,’ are explored and utilized.
