Unconscious Bias

About this Course:

Human Resources, recruiters, and people who hire and work together, all face the challenge of unintentional judgment based on irrationality, social cues, and cultural differences. Hence, everyone has unconscious biases. They live in the recesses of the human brain without us realizing it. These biases are grown in each individual and can greatly influence the day-to-day decisions that are made both at home and at work.

Our Unconscious Bias workshop will introduce your participants to defining and understanding different unconscious biases. It will show the effects that these biases and stereotypes have on the culture and the business practices of a company. Participants will learn tools and processes to combat/disrupt unconscious biases and reframe their perspective. Workshop includes microaggressions that may go unnoticed at work and how to address them proactively. Partakers will discover techniques to communicate effectively and respectfully to create an inclusive workplace.

You will greatly benefit from learning the workings of the subconscious mind and how to harness its power to rise in objectivity, efficiency, and creativity. Further, gaining insights on limiting beliefs and conditioning of the mind will broaden the viewpoint of the participants. This will allow for enhanced productivity and engagement.
