Business in Colour: Influence Up - Michelle Gibbings

Thanks to Sadhana Smiles and Div Pillay for this great conversation on the Business in Colour podcast as Michelle discusses how we make assumptions based on past experiences on how things should be, and stereotype views we may have. Michelle also reflects on her own personal experience around this. 

Michelle Gibbings is an author of 3 books, Dare to Lead coach, Global Keynote Speaker, and is on a mission to help leaders, teams and organisations create successful workplaces.

Comfortable with getting uncomfortable, Michelle is at the forefront of creating workplace success by helping people embrace the unknown and fall in love with change.

We talk about how we make assumptions based on past experiences on how things should be, stereotype views we may have and her own personal experience around this.

Being exposed to different cultures enriches how we think, problem solve and build relationships. When you come from a world where have a narrow view, you are missing out on great experiences and also will end up having a very narrow frame of reference from which to make a difference. Diversity of thought means you get better decisions.

If you want to be a great leader you need to deliberately seek out people from different background to you.
