23 April, 2015

Human decision making is deeply biased. Given how critical sound decision making is, it is imperative that leaders determine how to identify and minimize bias whenever possible. The fact is many biases are completely unconscious to us. To date, there has been no widely used model for bias mitigation. 

Join David Rock, director of the NeuroLeadership Institute, along with guest presenters for a one-day session to help you understand and better navigate unspoken biases. This seminar will explore a brand new approach for breaking bias within teams and organizations by exposing underlying tendencies that drive our conceptual and resourcing decisions.
