My theme for this week is inherent bias – that voice within, that if left unchallenged, will serve only to defend our current belief system, and given that its Martin Luther King Day, there’s no better time than now to listen to an audio reading of a letter he wrote while being held in Birmingham jail. Many of the points raised in this letter are timeless and can help all of us to challenge our inherent bias.
The voice within, which will bring you into linearity with the progressing connection culture, is the voice of understanding.
This understanding arises when opinion is held off, for just a little while longer.
If holding off on judgement is not something you are interested in doing for moral advancement, then do it for professionalism.
A professional does not engage. I professional collects data and takes action that is most effective in accomplishing the means desired. The professional sees no advantage in venting the byproducts of emotional response, unless it’s seen fit.
