Blinded by Bias
Emotions impact the decisions we make, including the ‘good’, the ‘bad’, and the ‘ugly’ influencers that rest in the deep areas of our mind: heuristics. We say we are not biased individuals but the reality; our underlying thoughts and emotions are based on preconceptions and lived experience. We will take a deep dive into the cognitive biases that are subconsciously impacting your decision making, your role as a helper, and may be blinding you from making the best decisions. We will explore how these biases affect your personal relationships, judgments regarding equity, diversity, and inclusion, and the day-to-day responses in working with others. Take a journey to provide light and clarity; removing the blindfold of bias.
