    Breaking Bias ­- Coaching Different Cultures / Generations, Communication with Clients (Webinar)

    Wednesday, September 3, 2014

    CCEUs: 1.5 Core Competencies

    Sponsored by the NYC Charter Chapter
    (Chapter members should register directly
    through their specific charter chapter website.)

    Josh Davis, PhD presents Breaking Bias.  The human brain is deeply and intrinsically biased. The reality is that many biases are completely unconscious to us, yet they dramatically affect nearly every decision we make. From the individual to large teams, biased decision-making can scale to adversely impact entire organizational systems and culture. 
 We know how critical sound decision-making is, and how costly a poorly made one can be, not only for us, but for our communities and organizations as well. This is why it is imperative that all leaders identify and minimize bias whenever possible. The question is how do we break bias, before it breaks us?

    Josh Davis PhDThree things you will learn:

    • The different groups of biases
    • The way bias affects decisions
    • Bias mitigation techniques

    Dr. Josh Davis is the director of research for the NeuroLeadership Institute. His research deals with adaptive emotional state control and mind-body connections. He has received funding from the National Science Foundation, and as taught at New York University, Columbia University and Barnard College.

    Paul McGinniss, PCC, SBL®, MSHR
    October 24, 2014
    10:00 am - 11:30 am EST

    Recent and emerging findings from the fields of neuroscience and NeuroLeadership are explaining behavior from a brain-based perspective.

    In this session, Paul McGinniss will share a few simple but powerful models based on current research from the fields of neuroscience and NeuroLeadership that participants can immediately begin to use in their work and in their lives to facilitate positive change.

    In this session coaches will learn:

    • gain understanding of the neuroscience of generating insight, and
    • how to facilitate a space where insight becomes possible.
