As we deal with a complex world, we make assumptions… an inbuilt function of our brain of preconceived ideas; helps us quickly make sense of the world around us.

The problem with this is that most of these assumptions turn out to be wrong and misleading to the point that they can actually hinder our judgment and decision making

What to do

• Challenge our own stereotypes with stereotype replacement

• Learn to use counter stereotype imaging strategy not only replaces existing stereotypes but injects positive-based biases, which challenge the current bias we have

• Integrate empathy to better connect, collaborate and improve overall engagement across the company’s culture.

description of Unconscious Bias

People feel secure with people that look, feel and speak like them, and

feel threatened and fear from the OTHER … gender, color, country, or different sexual orientation.

Fear translates to reactions.

Our reactions are a result of incidents that cause the brain to recall previous similar associations from our earlier programming- our brain connects in a similar way by the trigger if we perceive danger if different people from different backgrounds; different things can get triggered.

Then we start seeing the world in a dualism way or basically US against THEM depending on who you are could be political, gender, race etc. we have a tendency to create a wall between us and these people internally without feeling it.

By gaining a deeper understanding of the biases that influence our perceptions, we can better manage relationships and resolve conflict.
