Attribution Bias

All human brains use biases to help us make sense of the world. We will explore our unconscious biases or our ‘people preferences’ of how we naturally favour those who look like us, sound like us and are interested in the same things. Participants will gain a clear understanding of the three main types of bias that are apparent in the workforce: affinity bias (where we ignore negative traits of people we like and focus on the faults of those we don’t), social comparison bias (where we favour those we consider to be in ‘our group’) and confirmatory bias (where we seek for facts that will confirm our pre-existing perceptions). In this one-day workshop we explore the impact of attributions upon employee performance and managerial effectiveness.
