Leadership & Change: Bias, Stereotypes and the Impact on Organisational Behaviour

Binna Kandola is Senior Partner and co-founder of Pearn Kandola. His areas of expertise are diversity and inclusion, equal opportunities, assessment and development. He is particularly interested in understanding bias and finding ways to reduce it through effective leadership.

In the video and presentation below, Binna Kandola cogently explains how leaders need to examine issues like bias, stereotyping, group think, how we attend to information to confirm stereotypes , how and why some workplace interventions might enforce unconscious bias and how valuing ‘difference’ can maintain stereotypes.   Ultimately Kandola presents a challenge to engrained leadership practice, putting forward a new way of leading.   It’s fascinating stuff.   As marketers, leaders and as human beings, we are evolving.   There is still much to do.   Watch and learn.
