Working In & Out of the Box

The Box - a simple, yet powerful tool transcending language and cultural barriers - simplifies complex concepts by making invisible physical, and by making the unconscious conscious

Description

Wear The Box to understand the impact of your unconscious bias on your day to day thinking. Your unconscious thinking impacts you MORE than the box you are wearing.  

 

When people say, “Think out of the box,” what is “the box?” 

  • The Box represents the invisible boundaries of your thinking.  

Create a physical representation of your unconscious bias…your “box”  

  • Creating a physical map of our unconscious thinking allows us to make conscious decisions about our future thinking.  

Draw on the outside of the box is what others see, hear and observer.  

  • Authenticity helps improve the alignment between your private and public self.  

Reflect on the filters you use to understand and be understood (language, culture, gender, experience, job function, etc.)  

  • The Front of The Box represents the filters of your past learning and current context.  

  • Curiosity  

Challenge judgements we make about self and others through having a more open mind.  

  • Being open-minded is about suspending judgements to understand other people’s thinking and perspective in order to improve our ability to work and achieve together with chemistry.  

Be a part of the solution to other people’s pressure through empathy.  

 

Apply the learnings by adjusting your own Box  

  • Authenticity – How can I be more real with others?  

  • Curiosity – How can I take a real interest in others to improve our chemistry?  

  • Open Mindedness – How can I reduce judgements to make space for differences?  

  • Empathy – How can I better understand and be a solution for the pressure others are under?
