About the Event
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 disguising your awareness, discernment, and your perceptions when 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 clarity; removing the bias within your frame of reference.
