David Rock - Beyond Bias: Using Neuroscience to Shift Ingrained Thinking
October 3, 2016
Hosted by Dr. Cathy Greenberg and Dr. Relly Nadler
In a hyperconnected world, poor decisions can multiply like a chain reaction, breaking free of bias has never been more important. Many organizations are putting money and resources toward educating people about biases. For example, U.S. companies spend an estimated US200 million to 300 million dollars a year on diversity programs and sensitivity training, in which executives, managers, and employees are told to watch out for biases, in particular when making hiring and promotion decisions. Unfortunately, there is very little evidence that educating people about biases does anything to reduce their influence. Human biases occur outside conscious awareness, and thus people are literally unaware of them as they occur. Join neuroscience-leadership expert David Rock in today’s show to learn more about “breaking bias” to maximize talent and effective thinking.
