Paul Walker, President and Chief Operating Officer, FranklinCovey, said, “We’re honored to partner with the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies to provide them with our Unconscious Bias solution.

LHM Group employees are participating in FranklinCovey’s Unconscious Bias: Understanding Bias to Unleash Potential™, which establishes a connection between unconscious bias, also referred to as implicit or cognitive bias, and individual, team and organizational performance. It provides organizations with a framework to build upon a culture that values diversity and inclusion. There is nothing more fundamental to performance than how people see and treat each other as human beings and unconscious bias can impact that significantly. Participants learn how to:
- Understand and identify bias in how people think and act in the workplace
- Know the common circumstances that lead to biased thinking and when to pause and more fully consider decisions and behaviors
- Cultivate deep and meaningful connections between people of varying backgrounds by using empathy and curiosity to expand mutual understanding and improve decision-making
- Choose courage and engage with care and boldness in addressing the full spectrum of biases that limit people and constrain performance, from race, gender, disability and orientation to socioeconomic status, decision making and how we tolerate risk and engagement
- Build upon a culture in which everyone is respected, valued and can thrive and contribute their highest performance
