Our brains are amazing at making connections, doing work, and making decisions without us ever realizing it. Like when you drive home and realize as you’re parking that you don’t really remember the drive – yup – your unconscious brain played navigator so you could zone out a bit. However, these unconscious connections and processes can have a lasting effect on how you do your job.

Join us as we discuss different types of bias and how they unconsciously invade your decisions and actions on and off the job.

  • Learn to identify 5-8 different bias types
  • Understand how bias and cynicism can play off of each other;
  • That bias, while often thought of as a negative, is actually an evolutionary necessity that we can earn to identify and  work on
  • And how to create a shared language around bias so your entire team can work on being more aware of these unconscious traps.
