Webinar Series: The World Has Changed
Webinar Topic: Are you Conscious of your Unconscious Bias?
About the webinar:
1. Do you ever wonder why smart, well intentioned leaders often make poor decisions?
The answer is simple. We as humans are heavily influenced by our primary, innate biases. Our biases function outside of our rational, logical thinking and play a fundamental role in the way we sort through billions of stimuli and make decisions.
The dilemma of bias is that the very benefits of bias which we often call good instinct, which has supported us, can also be the source of being close-minded, judgmental and discounting potential talent.
This webinar makes one understand the concept of unconscious bias and how it can influence our daily decisions.. It explores how we can become “conscious of our unconscious biases” which in turn will help us become more emotionally resilient. This can be particularly useful during this pandemic when so many of us are feeling stressed or vulnerable.
