Unconscious Bias Training
Unconscious Bias Training in Indianapolis, IN, for a Better Team
When it comes to building a great team, it’s natural to want people that tend to work and think alike. But the truth is that diversity is one of the greatest assets any team can have. Diversity of skills, experience, identity, and point of view are all valuable traits–however, there are times when team members can find these traits disruptive, rather than productive. These are times when unconscious bias training in Indianapolis, IN, can be helpful.
Jonamay Lambert & Associates, or JLA, understands the challenges that managers face when their team doesn’t harmonize on the first or even second try. That’s why we developed “The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team,” an assessment-based learning experience based on the bestselling book by Patrick Lencioni. Thanks to our unique perspectives on diversity and inclusion, we were able to create an assessment that helps managers build more effective and higher-performing teams.
About the Assessment
You may be familiar with Carl Jung’s theory of psychological types and their role in training programs across many industries. For example, the MBTI instrument is frequently used in teambuilding exercises and other programs to help employees understand their strengths, weaknesses, and communication styles. If you’ve used this or a similar tool with your own team, JLA’s “Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team” unconscious bias training program can lend additional insight into your team’s psychological makeup.
After taking the assessment, each employee will understand their own DiSC style. DiSC stands for Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness, all of which team members bring to the workplace in their own unique ways. By understanding DiSC styles, it’s easier to see what role each employee plays, how it’s valuable, and what other employees can do to interact and communicate with them more effectively.
