Unconscious biases influence all that you do. Research since the late 1970’s has shown that such biases are actually the basis of your leadership strengths.
Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) July 07, 2016
Metcalf & Associates’ Metcalf first interview is a conversation with Christopher and Sheila talking about personal freedom and flow, and how they used the online LeaderView Self-Assessment to build it. This conversation includes a discussion of how the assessment helps leaders discover their leadership strengths and biases. Christopher and Sheila Cooke lead the consulting firm 5 Deep, a specialist training and advisory company that is focused on igniting the new era through thought leadership, innovation and change.
Unconscious bias is the way we see the world that we believe is right and that is often not shared by others, causing misunderstandings. These biases influence all that you do. Research since the late 1970’s has shown that such biases are actually the basis of your leadership strengths. Through a process of assessment and self-discovery, leaders build self-awareness, learn what it means to step through the worldview membrane, and learn how to dramatically increase engagement in their organizations.
After explaining the assessment tool and flow of the four-part series, the Cookes introduce two participants, Carla Morelli and Jim Svagerko, both accomplished leaders who took the assessment and share their development process with listeners. This conversation includes their discovery of how “adaptive intelligences” or how we adapt to challenges or different settings, influence all that they think, say, and do. Morelli and Svagerko gain insight into the leadership signature they are next naturally growing into as well as appreciating the richness of their natural leadership, learning, emotional, organizational, decision-making, relationship, creative, and motivational biases. This process allows them to “listen in” to discussions with actual leaders discussing their development process.
Listeners can take an online profile called LeaderView. They can use the resulting information and follow the step-by-step exercises to learn about their unique range of ‘Adaptive Intelligences’ and how these influence their values and leadership style. Next they can invite two peers to assess them and gain insights from them about the culture they create as a leader.
Through this process listeners will build self-awareness, learn what it means to step through the worldview membrane, and learn how to dramatically increase engagement in their organizations.
