Unconscious Bias: Check Yourself

You’re interviewing candidates for a new job. Three interview well but you finally settle on the person you think is most suited for the job: James. But looking a little closer - why do you think that person is best for the job? Is it a coincidence that you and James have the same educational background, or that you both support the same sports team? What about the fact that James was the only male candidate and the rest of the office is predominantly men – were you unconsciously seeing his gender as part of the reason he ‘suited’ the...

Career Management - The Basic Problem:

“So, what do you do?” (i.e. “What’s your job?”) A common question, but rarely, if ever, will anyone ask you about your ‘career’, and far less how you’re actually managing it. In fact the majority of people rarely think in terms of career; they tend to think instead about their ‘job’. So why, when our career is probably one of the most important aspects of our lives, do we spend so little time attending to it? If you ask people if they are happy with their job, very few would actually say yes. Some might say ‘content’, but most would...
