When we think about prejudice, we think about age, sex, race, religion, etc. But what about yoru reaction and pre-judgments of people whose style is different from your own? (This is from my February newsletter – ArLyne)What about the person who doesn’t speak up in meetings? What about the woman who speaks her mind directly and to the point? What is your reaction to people who apologize frequently?
What’s your reaction if someone tells you she is an attorney? An IRS agent? An HR executive? An artist?
How would you react if Judge Judy was assigned to be your Project Manager?
Get my point? Think about it. What are some of your prejudices that make you reject people you should be considering as valuable?
