This course will help participants to manage their biases and develop skills for overcoming them. Evolutionary psychologists report that we have learned to make up our minds, in a split-second, about whether we are encountering friend or foe and are hard-wired to be suspicious of those different from ourselves. Overweight people, those with a weak handshake or tattoos, and of course gender issues, race, LGBT (to name just a few!). This undermines confidence and may result in poor performance, disengagement and conflict. As a result, individuals and organisations are missing out on great talent; not forming strong working relationships, inhibiting excellent performance etc.


  1. Understand where unconscious bias stems from and the difference between bias, stereotyping and discrimination

  2. Recognise the numerous formats in which unconscious biases exist

  3. Understand the consequences to individuals and teams when unconscious biases influence behaviour

  4. Identify personal unconscious biases and how they may contrast with conscious views

  5. Adopt techniques for overcoming and challenging unconscious bias in order to be more inclusive
