One of the biggest barriers to adaptive thinking is unconscious and implicit bias.
We know that implicit bias has a strong impact on the split-second decisions we make. Too often, we think of unconscious bias as something we do
. In reality, it is the way our brains are wired.
Undoing unconscious bias takes years and lots of effort — and even then we can't eliminate it completely. Instead, we find that people have more success when they recognise their unconscious bias and work around it.In our Adaptive Global Leaders & Super Teams program, our coaches address bias by:
- Helping you understand your brain and what it does
- Identify how unconscious and implicit bias controls your brain specifically
- Identify the ways that these behaviours can manifest into behaviours or decisions
- Provide strategies to overcome these biases and prevent letting your behaviour and decisions from being driven by them.
This is not a process that can be mastered overnight. But by beginning to work out our unconscious biases and how they limit us, we can begin to work to overcome them.
