There is a secret bias in the workplace that no one talks about. If you fail to recognize it, you risk the long-term success of your career. But if you can master this skill, you can supercharge your career. This bias rewards people who are able to quickly respond to topics in real time as they come up. You may have seen this occur in meetings where some people are more likely to react in the moment with an articulate response while others are not.
This bias is pervasive in our workplace, and it rewards those who have the skill, but penalizes those who don’t. Those who are introverted, speak English as a second language, are neurodivergent, or need time to process ideas are all at a major disadvantage. Drawing on the advice in her new book Take Back Your Power, Deb will talk about this bias and how it manifests. She will also discuss ways you can proactively address it in your work to accelerate your career.
