It's All in Your Head: Use Neuroscience to Improve Performance
We humans process millions of bits of information each day. In order to handle that data load, our brains have developed shortcuts to take advantage of patterns, shared knowledge, and experience. Unfortunately, sometimes those shortcuts lead us astray, causing us to draw inaccurate conclusions. Faye Thompson says these shortcuts are amplified when we bring together a team of people, all trying to work together. Understanding how and why our brains take shortcuts to process all the incoming data can help us recognize when it's happening, take measures to correct our course, and even use that information to build stronger teams. Faye shares some of the most common types of biases and explores how we can recognize when they are negatively impacting our team. Practice some techniques for working around their impacts and uncover your biases.
