About the course

The MicroInequities program instructs leaders how to uncover the subtle micromessages that represent the cornerstone of how we are all motivated to perform differently in the workplace. Micromessages rest squarely in the arena of Unconscious Bias. These micromessages are conveyed through gestures, tone, nuance, inflection, inference and syntax. They transcend the actual words we use and are the underpinnings that establish a corporate culture. The program explores the critical balance between our denotation (the words we use) and connotation (what the words ultimately convey.) This session provides participants with specific actions and tools that enable them to drive behavior change that raises the performance of everyone within a leader’s sphere of influence.
