Episode Info: Are humans fully rational creatures? While most of us would say "no," unfortunately too many organizations act as if their employees are driven only by logic and reason. However, much recent research shows that humans are mostly driven by emotions and our evolutionary background has resulted in a series of mental errors – called cognitive biases – that result in tribal behaviors, undermining diversity and inclusion initiatives. To address such problematic behaviors, we need to understand the emotional drivers that result in tribalism and undercut diversity and inclusion, and thus damage motivation and engagement, increase discord and turnover, and create a toxic internal culture. Cultivating diversity and inclusion thus requires a grasp of organizational social intelligence, the ability to understand and shape the emotions and social interactions of stakeholders within an organization. Attendees will learn social intelligence research-based strategies customized to the needs of HR professionals and get free access to a web-based app that helps address such cognitive biases and effectively cultivate diversity and inclusion within an organization.Slides here: Objectives1.
