Unconscious Bias: Understanding Bias to Unleash Potential™

Addressing Unconscious Bias Lets Your People Thrive.

The Solution

See and Treat Each Other as Human Beings

Bias is a natural part of the human condition—of how our brain functions. And it affects how we make decisions, engage with each other, and react to all sorts of situations and circumstances, often limiting potential. Nothing is more fundamental to performance than how we see and treat each other as human beings.

    I found it really really helpful. To be honest, my bias going in was that I was really busy and that training was not going to be worth the time I could spend completing my tasks - but my bias was proved very very wrong!!! And Laura was an excellent trainer and facilitator - thank you!

    Geweldig. Laura te Hennepe is erg goed, weet de deelnemers op heel prettige wijze subtiel te confronteren met onze eigen biases, ieder op het niveau dat die aankan. De confrontatie wordt nooit zo heftig dat iemand afhaakt, maar ook niet zo mild dat iemand er niet veel van opsteekt.

    Ik vond het een enorm leerzame workshop. Zeker voor een online variant vond ik het erg knap hoe intiem de setting eigenlijk was, hoe veilig het voelde om je verhaal te delen en hoe iedereen zo goed meedeed. De leider van de workshop was enorm enthousiast, heel erg kundig en wist erg goed iedereen goed te betrekken bij de sessies, door middel van gerichte vragen en het inzetten van erg nuttige break out rooms waarin we heel erg leerzame opdrachten hebben kunnen doen.

    Echt een belangrijke workshop om je bewust te maken van de 'unconscious bias' die altijd op de loer ligt. Niet alleen over de grote thema's gender en ras, maar juist ook op hele kleine schaal. Het gaat ook erg om connection, empathy en courage. Iets wat me na bij het hart ligt.

    This is a workshop that everyone in the company should do.
    Great learning experience to be aware of what bias is in general and what my own biases are. I think about what i've learned regularly, when certain situations in which boas plays a role present themselves.

    I liked the interactive nature of this workshop. It was a safe environment to enable you to think and confront your own biases. It opened my mind to things that I had thought of, but now encouraged to take actions.
