Toward Solutions for Unconscious Bias - Getting to We
Tools for Relationship Professionals
Is it possible to build a community inspite of differing ethnic, moral and gender concepts? Developing transcultural competence means bringing together competing, societal forces without succumbing to romantic ideals or other conflict avoidance strategies. As individuals, we are tempted to react to this challenge with reflexive assertion. On the contrary, a recognition of what we share is paramount, if a productive discourse is what we seek. Lastly, it is advisable to know which idiosynchrasies we bring to the negotiation table, before we start identifying other’s shortcomings. Only a confrontation with one’s self can make this possible.
In our day-to-day lives we seldom negotiate formally, but informally constantly. If we have the opportunity of comparing the several assessments of our personal negotiation and communication styles, the results are usually eye-opening. Assessments can reveal our cultural and individual profiles, similar to fingerprints and provide us with strategic signposts when navigating conflicts in the making.
Agreements and gaps between the attributes that the assessments deliver show us where we are all on the same page and where there is work to be done. This, in turn, serves as the basis for drafting intersectional interventions and is tantamount to professionalizing our own custom negotiation style.
Intersectionality describes an expanded, productive perspective regarding culture and gender issues. Interventions put this knowledge into practice. The course offering, as well as, the consulting approach
