Unconscious Bias: Understanding Biasto Unleash Potential™

Announcing FranklinCovey’s newest offering Unconscious Bias: Understanding Bias to Unleash Potential™

 

Bias is a natural part of the human condition—of how the brain works. Every day, your leaders and your workforce are faced with countless bits of information while making decisions that range from the pragmatic to the strategic. As they confront more and more information—requiring them to act quickly while considering varying perspectives—they are primed to rely on biased thinking. Why? Because unconscious biases are shortcuts that help our brains compensate for overload. This affects how we make decisions, engage with others, and respond to various situations and circumstances, often limiting potential, inhibiting performance, and leading to poor decision-making.

One-Minute Overview of Unconscious Bias: Understanding Bias to Unleash Potential

A bias is a preference for or against a person, place, or thing. But unconscious bias leaves us unaware of potential harm resulting from biased thinking. As we understand bias, we can address it to create a culture in which everyone thrives.

 

Unconscious Bias: Understanding Bias to Unleash Potential

Our brains take shortcuts when processing information. These shortcuts, or biases, can have unintended consequences—consequences that may limit the contributions of others and prevent our teams and organization from performing at their best. We can limit the negative effects of bias by actively thinking about how biases are at play in the choices we make, cultivating meaningful connections with others, and choosing to act with courage to identify and address bias.
