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: Learning Objectives 1. Uncover how our evolutionary heritage inhibits diversity and inclusion 2. Assess how well your organization engages people emotionally 3. Discover the implications of recent social intelligence research on how to improve diversity and inclusion within your organization 4. Learn to use a specific web-based app to help cultivate socially intelligent, diverse, and inclusive organizations.  Speaker Biography Dr. Gleb Tsipursky is the co-founder and President of Intentional Insights, which specializes in helping leaders and organizations avoid disaster through science-based decision-making and align employee incentives with organizational priorities through emotional and social intelligence. With over two decades of experience in speaking, consulting, and coaching on these topics, Gleb is known for adapting cutting-edge research to everyday business reality and maximizing the bottom line for his clients. Gleb began his career as a scholar of behavioral science and rose to the level of tenure-track professor at the Ohio State University, publishing over 25 peer-reviewed articles and two peer-reviewed monographs. While pursuing his scholarly career, Gleb began to speak about decision-making and emotional and social intelligence outside of academia. His engaging, insightful, and highly interactive programs drew widespread acclaim and top marks from audiences, leading to speaking engagements at prominent associations and companies. Forward-looking leaders soon began to hire Gleb as a consultant and executive coach before launching major new projects, to improve current processes and team culture, and to avoid future catastrophes. On the basis of this success, Gleb co-founded Intentional Insights in 2014 to create content and provide consulting services in decision-making and emotional and social intelligence. Gleb’s ability to communicate research-based strategies clearly and eloquently, and adapt them to business realities, resulted in the #1 Amazon bestseller The Truth-Seeker’s Handbook: A Science-Based Guide. He was featured in over 400 articles in a variety of venues, such as Inc. Magazine, Time, Newsweek, Scientific American, Psychology Today, The Conversation, Salon, Business Insider, Government Executive, Lead Change Group, New York Daily News, The Plain Dealer, The Dallas Morning News, Inside Higher Ed, and The Chronicle of Philanthropy. He appeared in over 350 guest interviews, including US televised appearances on CBS News, FOX28, ABC6, 10TV, and internationally on the Australian Broadcasting Network; US and international radio appearances, including on NPR, Sirius XM, WBAI, KGO, 700WLW, KRLD, KXNT, KTRS, WMNF, WCOL, and Sunny 95; and a wide variety of podcasts and videocasts.
