Perspectives: Breaking Through Bias

A consultant’s guide to challenging client misperceptions

Your clients come to you seeking knowledge, guidance, and expertise. So, it can be discouraging when a client, or anyone else, actively downplays or disregards that expertise based on age, gender, race, or other traits.

As an external consultant, you should expect some skepticism—but bias deserves no place. Watch this Perspectives panel discussion to learn how to deal with bias during your engagements, and remind clients why they hired you in the first place.

You’ll learn:

  • The consequences of client bias in consulting engagements
  • How to identify your own conscious (or unconscious) bias
  • Ways to challenge client bias and forge a partnership grounded in fairness
  • And more!
