Unconscious Bias: Exploring unconscious bias in people management

Everyone has unconscious bias and is prone to stereotype based on past experience. This is a normal human characteristic.   As managers we should be aware of how our unconscious biases can impact the decisions, we make about who we hire, how we manage and interact with people and who we develop and promote. 

This course will help you to recognise unconscious bias moments and turn them into positive conscious thoughts and actions leading to better people management decisions.


Key training features:

  • Learn about social science theories associated with unconscious bias
  • Learn how unconscious bias can manifest itself in day to day people interactions
  • Identify behaviours associated with unconscious bias that can limit the assessment of talent
  • Apply unconscious bias social science theories to core people management processes; recruitment, development and advancement

Designed for:

Managers who have people management responsibilities, particularly those who hire on a regular basis; are asked to assess those with high potential and make decisions on promotion.
