Coaching Science Community of Practice - Unconscious Bias:The Challenge and Opportunity for Coaching
Neuroscience research has begun to ‘connect the dots’ on how the brain works and how brain functioning supports both conscious and unconscious thought processes. With this newfound knowledge, we are beginning to understand the power of unconscious bias and its impact on behavior, decision-making and interpersonal dynamics. It is important for coaches to be knowledgeable about unconscious bias, since its impact—and fallout—is part of our daily life. In this highly interactive webinar, Dr. Carlos Davidovich teaches the Coaching Science Community of Practice about the two basic systems that link biases to decision making, and how unconscious bias operates in the brain. He shares what coaches need to know to identify and work on the gap between a client’s intentions – and their actual behavior.
