Facebook found itself at the center of a political firestorm a few months ago – it was accused of censoring conservative stories on its trending news section.

But COO Sheryl Sandberg revealed last week that the company will offer classes to employees on how to manage their political biases.

That's in addition to the classes it already has on race bias, age bias, gender bias and more.

To some people, however, their own views are the norm and everyone else is on the extreme side of the political spectrum.

Kimberly Kahn, professor of social psychology at Portland State University and expert in hidden biases, joins Take Two on how to gut-check political leanings that can affect the workplace.
