Course description

All employees who want a deeper understanding of what motivates, provokes and inspires them and those concerned about the consequences of unconscious biases within their workplace.



  • review: what is Unconscious Bias?

  • how does Unconscious Bias effect the workplace?

  • self-awareness: from ‘Unconscious Biases’ to ‘Conscious Choices

  • strategies for effectively managing workplace biases


Due to the nature of this topic, the maximum number of participants is 10 and a degree of openness and readiness to participate in the programme is required.

Training objectives

It will be especially useful for those with responsibility for recruitment, appraisals, strategy, policy & process development and organisational functions.
 


" ... the subject is so fascinating that you could discuss it for hours if you had the time. The practical exercises were just enough to give us a basis for discussion during the session, but also a great starting point for further reflection"


"I feel that this course is something that everyone needs to attend, but I do think that people need to be warned that they may find it challenging, but rewarding. The delegates I shared the training with were open and honest and happy to openly share experiences."


"Overall an excellent course with a lot of thought-provoking material and an excellent trainer."
