How Breaking Bias Can Improve Your Profitability
Please join the Essex County Estate Planning Council on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 for "How Breaking Bias Can Improve Your Profitability " with Lawler Kang, founder and CEO of the League of Allies.
The League of Allies believes superior performance/alpha returns are generated when people, regardless of backgrounds, can work together on an equal and balanced basis. We call this "inclusive synergy." Unconscious, or unintended, bias implicitly constrains this synergy, and all of us can easily fall victim to it. This session will start by making a business case to set the context, present a tool to help identify biases and will then apply these observations to functions that concern your business' profitability , e.g. client attraction and retention, your employee lifecycle and more.
