Identifying and Combatting Cognitive Bias

Conventional thinking has us believing that  we are rational beings able to make sound decisions based on our own impressions of the world. In reality, our brain can’t take in and process all that is around us so we edit and skip what initially view as less important. Together, we will come to understand the root of cognitive biases, our tendencies to make decisions or take action based on a limited set of information. You’ll learn how to use the ladder of inference, to play the “what if” game and to declare the assumptions and biases that can keep you and your team from performing at its best.
