Improve Your Team: Explore Cognitive Bias
Many team challenges can be tracked back to cognitive biases: our judgement gets anchored, we think we're better than we are, and we are our own favorite reference point. And even though we're encouraged to "think outside the box," there are conditions where we have a bias against creativity. If that's not a recipe for a tough team environment, I don't know what is! Improve your game by learning about bias! In this session, you will learn about engrained flaws in the way humans process information. These flaws express themselves in unrealistic estimates and over-optimistic forecasts. You will also learn about flaws in the way we perceive ourselves and others. Memorable events make us believe that the event is likely to happen. We are biased toward the group we are in, and we are biased toward the choices we’ve made. The number and types of bias are amazing! Join this session and leave with strategies for identifying and mitigating bias in yourself and on your team.
