More About The Workshop
In this two-hour session, we will:
• Learn about the different errors and biases to which our minds are prone, and how to correct for these.
• Consider the ways in which we might judge ideas too much by their source and too little on their independent merit.
• Practise the art of detachment from our own experiences and interests, in order to consider things from a wider, more universal point of view.
• Learn strategies for making decisions that will serve us well in the long term.
What characterises mastery of this skill?
Employees demonstrate objectivity by detaching and reflecting on their impulses and seeking the perspective of others. They can fully explain their decisions and keep an open mind about how biases can affect them. Objective employees may also have clear boundaries and ‘ground rules’ that help them avoid biases altogether.
What characterises a lack of this skill?
Those with a lack of objectivity tend to make spontaneous and impulsive decisions based on biased perceptions. They might feel regret about previous actions and choices, or else vehemently defend decisions that had negative consequences. Questioning their decisions may lead to defensiveness rather than fruitful discussion.
“The horrid doubt always arises whether the convictions of man’s mind … are of any value or at all trustworthy.” — Charles Darwin
