Taking time to tackle unconscious bias

This article suggests four habits to combat unconscious bias in the workplace, what do you think of them? I'm all for self-assessment and holding myself accountable but I'd be interested in anyone's experiences of holding others accountable. Is it possible if everyone isn't on the same page and prepared for feedback from colleagues?

'Air products' - an interesting name.
A book by David Kolb called experiential learning, is about self evaluation and change. but requires a level of self awareness to take full advantage.

I think self-awareness is probably the issue. How does anyone know they have a bias if they're not open to it? I did one of the Harvard implicit bias tests for some training developed by the Institute of Physics a few years ago and the results were eye-opening. I don't think anyone was happy with their scores! It definitely caused us all to re-evaluate our positions on whether we needed to challenge ourselves.
