You are biased!
I guess that's not exactly the best way to get an audience on side but I am speaking the truth, even if you don't want to hear it!
You are biased and so am I. It is human, it is natural and it is unavoidable. And it is perhaps the greatest obstacle to productivity in the workplace. Yet most of us remain defensive as to the extent to which blockers affect our own thought processes and react defensively when we feel attacked for being part of the problem.
The reality is, of course, that if we don't surface our biases, see that we are part of the problem, how can we ever hope to be part of the solution? At byrne.dean we believe in focusing on the impact of bias rather than the bias itself - drilling down to how bias "plays out" in relation to our routine and critical decision making. Come along to our next open session on 23 May 2017 - there's no blame but we will challenge you to reflect on the factors that lead you to make certain decisions and we'll ask you to challenge yourself about what you can do about it every day. We have some good tips for this too!
This highly engaging and discussion based session looks at the way we are “wired”, why it is so difficult to put the theory into good practice and provides guidance and tools to ensure our unconscious thoughts do not create preferential treatment for some and missed opportunities for others. Come along and find out more.
