Discovering Our Blindspots
 

Becoming more sensitive to how our words and behaviors may impact others starts with an understanding of perception and bias. Instruction will equip you with the knowledge, understanding, sensitivity and tools that will improve self-awareness, mitigate unconscious biases, and improve interactions and relationships with colleagues and clients. Everyone has unconscious biases; it’s how our brains are wired. There is no shame or blame when we unconsciously act on our biases. The goal is to see the value in improving our self-awareness around biases so we can recognize when one creeps up and can then stop ourselves before it negatively influences what we say or do. Facilitated by a certified life coach.
