  • The Hidden Brain: The Power of Unconscious Bias in the Workplace

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 10/29/2019

    Returning Favorite! We all know that the unconscious mind is a powerful and intrinsic force in helping to shape our overall behavior in our everyday lives. Similarly, organizations and thought leaders are beginning to appreciate and harness this deeper understanding of how our cultures help shape the automatic decisions that we make every moment of our lives and the profound impact that this phenomenon has on our personal and professional lives. Every human being gets triggered, either positively or negatively, when we are exposed to different kinds of people. The concept of “unconscious bias” impacts individuals and organizations at virtually every level of organizational life including hiring, performance management, succession planning, and strategic decisions in organizations. Cutting-edge recent studies and research within the cognitive sciences point us to the conclusion that most of these decisions are not made by bad people with bad attitudes,but rather by well-intended people who have no idea about the internal unconscious processes that may be affecting their decision-making every day. In this session we will a focus on the concept of us vs.them and realize it’s really more about us and inclusion of others. Learning Objectives: Understand the neurocognitive science behind bias; Interpret your own patterns of beliefs and perceptions so you are better able to support inclusion for others at your organization; Learn the ways bias can impact critical business decisions and results, and ways to mitigate that impact.
