Is unconscious bias training the answer?

unconcious_bias.16-9_iStock-489359053

Unconscious bias is one of the ways we make sense of the world. We subconsciously categorise people instantly, before we even know them. And this can be very harmful, as it tends to breed conformity and a lack of diversity.

Mind-the-gap-show-image
It has been a challenging time for schools, as they begin to reopen. Our school friends we have spoken to have generally been left to design their own systems and procedures. It is safe to say, from our conversations, that there has been dismay in the lack of leadership and advice from central Government.  In the absence of clear leadership from...

Tips and techniques for working, learning and managing remotely

remote-work-1
As the corona virus continues to spread, increasing numbers of people are working remotely from home. Some are self-isolating. And, as we write this, it seems increasingly likely that, during the coming weeks, the government will put in more stringent measures to further curtail movement. As a result of these circumstances, many concerned businesses find themselves in uncharted waters. However, it’s...

Just like a trip to Woolworth’s in the 1990s, blended learning enables your professional development options to become that little bit sweeter. But why does it work? What impact can you expect...

soft-skill-jurgen-skill
Teaching soft skills. It’s what I do. It’s what I love. I once ran a talent programme within a large organisation and decided to take a chance on someone that had been dismissed by others. They rubbed people up the wrong way, had poor time management skills and couldn’t organise a kid’s tea party! A challenge to be had. The programme...

You might not like me if you read this and I’m OK with that.

kerry-you-wont-like-me
Hi. I’m Kerry and I’m lovely. Really easy to get on with. Some have been so creatively descriptive as to say ‘Kerry is soooo nice’. Too nice, I’ve wondered? Can you be too nice?
