Increase employee retention by identifying cognitive biases in your workplace and define bias mitigation strategies that can promote a more inclusive work environment.
Bias resides in the 99+% of how we unconsciously process information in any given moment. Most of the time, it serves us well. Understanding when it doesn't is key to improving our decisions, relationships and organizations.
Together, we will cover the five main biases. Each of the five common biases has a specific mitigation strategy. Proximity bias, for example, is unconsciously favoring whatever is closest in time, space and ownership. This bias is based on how close you are to a project, team, issue or problem. The impact is unintentional exclusion of people based on their region or physical location.
