The Hidden Story of Decision Making: Unconscious Bias in the Workplace

 

 

 

 

 

Annette Townley, Colin Close, Speaker bios

 

We make hundreds of decisions every day, believing we are making them based on facts and careful deliberation. But is that really true? How do we make decisions? What hidden factors drive our choices and actions without us even realizing it? Can we overcome biases that we don’t even know we have, or at least become less influenced by them? This workshop will explore how our hidden brain works, often in opposition to our conscious beliefs and ideals. We will also look at how these unconscious patterns of behavior can impact the workplace and what we can do about it.
