The problem with bias is that everyone else has it, and we don’t (right?). In this session, we'll identify and explore common cognitive biases that plague team and organizational decision making processes. Biases covered will include: confirmation bias, the fundamental attribution error, bias blind spot, the Abilene paradox, and the rewards folly.
-Identify and explain common biases in group decisions making
-Review examples of what these biases look like/sound like in everyday team conversations
-Identify the impact of unconscious biases to team effectiveness
-Generate communication interventions to disrupt biased decision making
