Unconscious Bias – The thing that could hold back cognitive diversity in your organisation

Tuesday, 26 November 2019

08:00 to 10:00

The Manor, Woodhouse Road, Quorn, LE12 8AL (in the Pavilion Building)

Psychologists tell us that our unconscious biases are simply our natural people preferences.  This preference bypasses our normal, rational and logical thinking.  We use these processes very effectively (we call it intuition) but the categories we use to sort people are not logical, modern or perhaps even legal.  Put simply, our neurology takes us to the very brink of bias and poor decision making.

By understanding unconscious bias and how it affects our choices, we are better equipped to recruit the right people and achieve cognitive diversity in organisations. Diverse thinking can provide a firm foundation for problem solving and organisational creativity. It understands that individual intelligence is no longer enough and it advocates that true optimisation of performance lies in the power of diverse opinion, thinking and perspective.

If you are a leader of people, or work in HR or Recruitment, this enlightening workshop helps you to recognise how the assumptions we make affect recruitment processes and decisions. 

Our guest speaker will be Laurence Harvey. Laurence is highly skilled in understanding, managing and developing people’s personal knowledge of how their attitudes are influenced and how this affects behaviours & organisational efficiency. 

He is adept at delivering face-to-face Unconscious Bias training for Senior Managers and Organisational Leaders, and has delivered exciting and enlightening workshops to over 3,000 senior people in the last 18 months.
