Daily management and hiring with

unconscious bias

What is actually behind it and what exactly do we mean by it? The English term bias can be translated as a cognitive distortion, among other things. This includes automatic stereotypes, prejudices, biases or other faulty interpretations when perceiving, remembering and judging. Since biases usually occur unconsciously, they are referred to as unconscious bias.

Unconscious perceptions, evaluations and decisions are always relevant for us in our day-to-day management and recruiting work. The way we judge our environment and the people in that environment has a strong influence on our behavior. Unconscious perception allows us to react quickly to our environment, but is also susceptible to errors.

The subject of our Unconscious Bias workshop are the following questions and their answers:

  • How did and do we come to our unconscious patterns?
  • What effects do unconscious distortions have on our everyday leadership and hiring work?
  • Why do we find it difficult to pause between perception and evaluation?
  • What are the risks for companies when they let the right people go and hire the wrong ones?
  • Why does the messenger always rub off on the message and the message always rubs off on the messenger?
  • Which simple methods help us to communicate more consciously without ignoring the unconscious perceptions?
