There’s a common shortcut at work that’s devastating to you, your team and inclusion that doesn’t really get talked about

Get your pen and paper ready because we’re talking about a short cut that is devastating for inclusion

This is the first in a two-part series about unearned benefits. Here when we talk about unearned benefits, we’re usually talking about privilege, unearned benefits, advantages and opportunities that people take for granted.

In today’s show we discuss several things including:

  • A common career shortcut that you should avoid
  • The dark side of unearned benefits
  • The relationship between self efficacy and ethical leadership and much more

“It’s useful to think of Self efficacy as a task-specific form of self confidence; It’s worth understanding the distinction”
