How You Can Use Forcing Functions to Develop Inclusion

Instead of wishing for Inclusive outcomes.

What if you could just force it to happen?

Get your pen and paper ready because we’re talking about Forcing Functions and how they can help you on your Inclusion Journey

In today’s show we discuss several things including:

  • How I use Forcing Functions in my professional life
  • The Famous Forcing Function used by Amazon Executives
  • 3 ideas of Forcing Functions that you can quickly introduce and much more

Here’s some of what we discuss on the show:

A Forcing Function is an activity that creates a desired outcome

“My practical use of a forcing function is about engaging in an activity or making a commitment that forces a desirable outcome as a consequence.”

I recommend regular activities that are publicly accountable

“The forcing functions that work for me are specific, they involve public accountability and they involve a regular activity”

Even if no one cares.. the forcing function still works

“Remember my examples.

No one listens to this podcast.. I’m still sharing my thoughts every week.

No one comes to the book club. I’m still developing insights.

No one reads what I write. I’m still improving my writing”
