Cognitive biases reside in the 99+% of how we unconsciously process information in any given moment. Most of the time, they serve us very well. Understanding when they don’t is key to improving our decisions, relationships, and organizations. We introduce a common language that differentiates between various types of bias.
Through a process of self-reflection & discovery, we strengthen workplace relationships by identifying the hidden (and not-so-hidden) biases that are impacting company performance.
By the end of the workshop, participants will:
- Deepen their understanding of Unconscious Bias.
- Understand how Unconscious Bias affects interactions & relationships.
- Understand the 5 most common cognitive biases in the workplace.
- Define and deliver mitigation strategies for each team.
To get started, please take 4-5 minutes to complete the unconscious bias assessment. We will use the results to accelerate the conceptual overview during the workshop.
You will get the results immediately afterwards and can then email it to yourself
