Topic: The Shadow of Bias on Leadership

Speaker: Juan Mª Gallego, PsyD., MIM, PMP, Organizational Development Consultant, El Toro Aburrido LLC, Author of “The Shadow of Bias on Leadership” 

Have you ever wondered why your organizational diversity programs may not be yielding the results that you were hoping for? Studies show that the increase in diversity within our workforce has a positive effect on our productivity, creativity, and bottom line, when and only when, proper inclusion simultaneously occurs. In his recent book “The Shadow of Bias on Leadership”, Juan explored the effects of bias on all of us, as leaders of organizations and teams, and the impact that it has in our organizations. After a thorough research, this book aims to develop and raise our self-awareness, explaining the reasons behind our behaviors, as well as potential pitfalls. In the book, you will also read about a series of techniques aimed at reducing the effects of our biases in the leadership of our organization. This book was written as a practical guide towards the exponential benefits of inclusive leadership, catapulting organizations’ profitability by harvesting the benefits of a diverse workforce.
