Learn to identify and address bias
Unconscious Bias offers a principle-based approach to identifying and addressing bias to increase individual and team performance.
Every day, we are faced with countless bits of information while making decisions. As we encounter more and more information we rely on biased thinking. Why? Because taking shortcuts is how our brains compensate for overload. But bias can also inhibit performance and lead to poor decision-making. Unconscious Bias goes beyond simply raising awareness and helps you build practical skills to recognize and counter the harmful effects of bias.
“There is no neutrality. There is only greater or lesser awareness of one’s bias.”
