with others and learn from their experience and perspectives.
Bias is a natural inclination of our minds and neuroscience shows that up to 99% of our thoughts can be unconscious. While this serves us well in routine situations, bias can also lead to false assumptions about ourselves and others that can have a negative impact on our relationships and personal performance.
We created Biased because we know that in an increasingly ambiguous, complex and disconnected world we need more than ever to identify our biases and to use tools to mitigate them to be a professional and effective leader.
This classroom experience works with a small trainer-participant ratio of 1:6 to create real connections and deep exchange. Biased is initially offered in English, though other languages, such as German, Spanish, Mandarin etc., are available upon request.
Who is it for
For leaders who are working in an international business environment and need to understand their own biases to manage their behaviour.
Before the workshop
The best way to understand unconscious bias is to experience it for yourself. So, before the training you will receive a simple, 10 question bias busting quiz. The quiz will demonstrate how biases can impact our ability to solve simple problems and make reliable guesses.
During the workshop
The workshop will be highly interactive, so you will be ready to take part actively, share your experiences and support other participants. You will learn about the neuroscience behind bias and explore three common biases and how they impact workplace skills such as decision making, collaboration and problem solving. You will also learn about tools and techniques to mitigate these biases. Finally you will plan how to apply what you have learnt to your own context.
After the workshop
To support and consolidate your learning you will receive two post-training resources: a key reading list on the topic of bias and a handy infographic summarising the training which you can pin up by your desk to help you internalise what you have learnt.
We offer Biased as an internal company training for €1,490.00 per session. The price includes a one hour tech-check for all participants.
