Let’s challenge our beliefs, open our minds and modify our thinking.
A goal of many organizations is to build an inclusive, positive workplace culture that achieves positive results. Doing so requires us to address how our individual behavior contributes to the culture. The truth is, we are all biased at times, and those biases can cause conflict and even toxicity in the workplace. Today, Dr. Janet Pilcher will discuss two cognitive biases we all experience from time to time and four ways to assess ourselves.
This episode addresses questions, such as:
- How can cognitive biases negatively interfere in the workplace?
- What is the Dunning-Kruger Affect?
- What can we do to assess our biases and challenge our own beliefs?
