Availability: Ready to download

Foreword by Laszlo Bock, the bestselling author of Work Rules! and former Senior Vice President of People Operations at Google An inspiring guide from Dolly Chugh, an award-winning social psychologist at the New York University Stern School of Business, on how to confront difficult issues including sexism, racism, inequality, and injustice so that you can make the world ( Foreword by Laszlo Bock, the bestselling author of Work Rules! and former Senior Vice President of People Operations at Google An inspiring guide from Dolly Chugh, an award-winning social psychologist at the New York University Stern School of Business, on how to confront difficult issues including sexism, racism, inequality, and injustice so that you can make the world (and yourself) better.Many of us believe in equality, diversity, and inclusion. But how do we stand up for those values in our turbulent world? The Person You Mean to Be is the smart, "semi-bold" person’s guide to fighting for what you believe in.Dolly reveals the surprising causes of inequality, grounded in the "psychology of good people". Using her research findings in unconscious bias as well as work across psychology, sociology, economics, political science, and other disciplines, she offers practical tools to respectfully and effectively talk politics with family, to be a better colleague to people who don’t look like you, and to avoid being a well-intentioned barrier to equality. Being the person we mean to be starts with a look at ourselves.She argues that the only way to be on the right side of history is to be a good-ish— rather than good—person. Good-ish people are always growing. Second, she helps you find your "ordinary privilege"—the part of your everyday identity you take for granted, such as race for a white person, sexual orientation for a straight person, gender for a man, or education for a college graduate. This part of your identity may bring blind spots, but it is your best tool for influencing change. Third, Dolly introduces the psychological reasons that make it hard for us to see the bias in and around us. She leads you from willful ignorance to willful awareness. Finally, she guides you on how, when, and whom, to engage (and not engage) in your workplaces, homes, and communities. Her science-based approach is a method any of us can put to use in all parts of our life.Whether you are a long-time activist or new to the fight, you can start from where you are. Through the compelling stories Dolly shares and the surprising science she reports, Dolly guides each of us closer to being the person we mean to be.

    Although peppered with engaging personal anecdotal stories, “The Person You Mean To Be,” by Dr. Dolly Chugh is, at its core, an evidence-based recipe book for getting over the psychological inertia that keeps you at rest, helping you move from “thinking about how to be a better person” to actually “becoming a better person.” I like to think of myself as a good person. We all do, right? Recently, though, it has become harder for me to square that self-image with my lack of tangible action against Although peppered with engaging personal anecdotal stories, “The Person You Mean To Be,” by Dr. Dolly Chugh is, at its core, an evidence-based recipe book for getting over the psychological inertia that keeps you at rest, helping you move from “thinking about how to be a better person” to actually “becoming a better person.” I like to think of myself as a good person. We all do, right? Recently, though, it has become harder for me to square that self-image with my lack of tangible action against the problems I see in the world. If you, like me, use “Yes, but what can I *do*?” as justification for standing still, then this book is for you. It makes you uncomfortable in the best possible way, and gives you concrete steps to take to use that discomfort to learn and grow - to become the person you’ve always meant to be.

I grimaced in recognition of many of the mistakes I have made "with the best of intentions" in my interactions with people with different backgrounds/gender/sexuality/culture/race/religion/health situations than mine. Thankfully, I also found hope and encouragement from Dr. Chugh's guidance on how small shifts in understanding, listening, and acting can help me always strive to be and do better. I expect I will reread this book frequently as I learn to appreciate its lessons and try to continuously improve. "The Person You Mean to Be" would be an excellent choice for any workplace or social book club.

I leave this book with greater intention and so appreciate the tools and suggestions Dolly Chugh offers. She makes it ok to start wherever you are… helps us judge ourselves and others less. She teaches us that this is not an ‘all or nothing’ game. Just put in the work to be better… closer to the person you mean to be.

    This should be required reading for anyone between the ages of 13 and 90. That’s not a joke. Every day, it seems like there’s an even more depressing story in the news. Racism. Sexism. Religious intolerance. Real people are being hurt. These are tough, uncomfortable topics, and as a straight white guy who wants to do the right thing, I’m never really sure what, exactly, I should be saying or doing.

Dolly Chugh’s fascinating, smart, thoughtful book is a welcome light in this darkness, and it has helped me answer (or at least better understand) many of these tricky questions. Her discussions of implicit bias and “headwinds and tailwinds,” for example, are the most lucid I’ve ever seen. The scope and depth of her research is staggering. I love that she’s one of the pioneers in this field, she speaks with authority from firsthand experience, and the interviews with other experts are consistently fantastic. It helps that her writing style is approachable and entertaining—this book is somehow a page-turner. (There are even jokes!) The world needed this book. Don’t miss it.

    With all of the chaos in the world around us, especially with respect to issues of bias in race, gender and sexual orientation, Dolly Chugh elegantly sheds light on how we can and should get involved and be the people we mean to be. It is rich with references to social science research and easily engaging anecdotes teaching us how we can be "doers" and not just believers. The book will challenge, teach and inspire us to embrace a growth mindset to be better people as we fight our biases.

    Professor Chugh writes early on that throughout the book “science will guide us and stories will bring the science to life.” She delivers 100% on that promise, illustrating the best of the empirical literature with narratives of how it unfolds every day. That she manages to do so, and distills the work to practical suggestions appropriate for each reader, wherever they may be in their journey, with an engaging voice, humility, and humor, makes this one of those rare books that is both urgent and Professor Chugh writes early on that throughout the book “science will guide us and stories will bring the science to life.” She delivers 100% on that promise, illustrating the best of the empirical literature with narratives of how it unfolds every day.

    Livro que explora como o nosso cérebro comporta face aos esteriótipos da sociedade como lgbt, minorities, men vs women. Faz-nos ver que, pelo facto de por vezes termos esses pensamentos, não nos faz más pessoas. No entanto alerta-nos para estes comportamentos comuns na nossa sociedade com várias histórias e artigos. Achei-o um pouco denso com muita psicologia à mistura.

    One of best books I have read in 2018. Addresses privilege, systems, inclusion and personally challenged the way I see myself and how I affect others. The good news Is if I can have a growth mindset- I can better listen and learn. I love all the great sources Dolly pulls from - and makes the words in her book real.

    In a time where bias, privilege, marches and riots have become part of our day to day lives, Dr. Dolly Chugh has come along with a “how to” book to navigate this very complicated world in which we live. I have thought of myself as empathetic to those who fall into minority groups.

I have thought of myself as empathetic to those who fall into minority groups. However, in my reading of "The Person You Mean To Be," in which Chugh illustrates, through a series of interviews and vignettes, how bias and privilege affect even the most tolerant of us, I have learned that even those of us with the best intentions have much room to grow. I am in the unique position of being among the vulnerable and the privileged, simultaneously. I am white, which affords a safeness my non-white friends can only imagine. I am a woman, which makes me more vulnerable to harassment than my male friends. These are both obvious to strangers on the street. Less obvious are my financial situation (affluent) and my sexual orientation (gay), both of which come with positives and negatives, but can be manipulated as I deem necessary based on different situations. This complicated canvas on which my life is painted affords me the ability to understand people from many walks of life. But it also gives me the convenience to blend in when I don’t have the energy to stand up to inequalities. Dr. Chugh has opened my eyes to the ways in which I have become complacent, and how I can do more to end that complacency. 
 "The Person You Mean To Be" is so timely and becoming more important by the day in our ever changing society. Read it, study it, and apply it.

    The Person You Mean to Be is an extraordinary book that helped me answer questions I’ve been grappling with for a long time. I am a true believer in equity, diversity and inclusion but have often found myself paralyzed by fear, discomfort and/or the sheer enormity of the problems facing the world. As hard as it is to admit, I have let too many opportunities slip by having done nothing to be a part of the solution.

As hard as it is to admit, I have let too many opportunities slip by having done nothing to be a part of the solution. The Person You Mean to Be helped me stop beating myself up about it and showed me that there are things I can do each and every day to take meaningful action to fight injustice. It provided specific, tangible ways I can use my own privilege and power to make a difference. This book has changed the way I think and most importantly, it has changed the way I live my life. I am a total work in progress, but this book was the jumping off point I needed to activate my own growth mindset and set me on a path toward becoming meaningfully more active and impactful on the world around me. In addition to being so incredibly useful, practical and inspiring, Dolly Chugh is also one of the most engaging, endearing and charming authors I’ve read. I loved this book so much I bought 5 more copies for friends and family. I can’t recommend this book highly enough.

    "I had hoped that [good people] would understand that law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice and that when they fail in this purpose they become the dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress."* Martin Luther King wrote those words in his Letter From a Birmingham Jail in 1963. More than 50 years later, many of those same dams still exist - and even though many of us think of ourselves as good people, if we're honest, we're often much more focused on ou "I had hoped that [good people] would understand that law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice and that when they fail in this purpose they become the dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress."* Martin Luther King wrote those words in his Letter From a Birmingham Jail in 1963. More than 50 years later, many of those same dams still exist - and even though many of us think of ourselves as good people, if we're honest, we're often much more focused on our own day-to-day challenges than we are on finding ways to encourage social progress. Dolly's book attacks that challenge head-on, and provides a blueprint for how we can be more aware of challenges others face, more likely to engage those challenges, and more capable of using our privilege in ways that produce a more positive outcome. Throughout the book, I felt inspired to look for ways to make a positive impact in my own day-to-day interactions. Just as importantly, Dolly does a fantastic job highlighting common mistakes people make - often with the best intentions - that can frustrate progress. I am certain that anyone reading this book will come away recognizing behaviors in themselves that they can improve on, that they will be inspired to pursue potentially uncomfortable conversations / experiences in the hopes of learning about those around them and their challenges. Throughout, the book blends anecdotes (see my disclosure below, btw) with years of research that will give even the most skeptical reader confidence that progress is not only possible, it's likely. * Dr. King didn't say "good people". He said "the white moderate". He was specifically calling attention to the vast majority of whites in the early 60s who were generically in favor of civil rights, but often specifically opposed to the methods and tactics chosen by those most affected by the lack of civil rights. For purposes of this quote (and given the focus of Dolly's book more broadly), it felt appropriate to swap out the generic 'good people' without altering the meaning of what he was saying. Full disclosure: I'm one of the people Dolly profiles in her book. I'm recommending the book in spite of that, not because of that. :)

    This culmination of research and interviews is an approachable, evidence-based work that does a good job of coaxing the reader into awareness without judgement or reprimand.

The aspirational undertones of fighting bias and making the world better for marginalized people is substantiated with tangible action items and relatable examples from different walks of life. Understanding that there is a gap between who "good people" are and who "good people" want to be is foundational to this book; but also understanding that fighting bias and overcoming our own psychology can be learned, practiced, and mastered is revolutionary. We exercise to improve our hearts. We read to expand our minds. We take lessons to have a great tennis serve-- this book is the crucial first step in building a regimen for overcoming complacency and holding ourselves accountable for being the person we'd like to think we already are. It's a great gut-check and conversation starter-- it's definitely a book that should be read and socialized among friends and allies so that we force ourselves to push through the getting started phase and into the important work of becoming the person we mean to be.

    This is exactly the sort of book that will help me as I continue to find ways to engage my community and become a better ally and agitator in different parts of my life. The author offers guidance not only for how-- but also when and whom-- to engage others. We can all put this psychology to use as we strive to be "good-ish" and the people we mean to be.

    A very accessible book with concrete suggestions on how to get closer to being the person you want to be. It's such a timely book in our divided world. And it brings research to bear on the question of "what can I do?" Of course, I'm a little biased because I'm already a huge fan of Dolly's.
