How to overcome unconscious bias

The unconscious bias neuroscience shows that if you have a brain, you have bias. Despite this, for leaders, it’s vitally important that this bias is mitigated before it negatively affects decision-making. The following steps can be taken to overcome unconscious bias:

  • Acknowledge your bias
  • Learn more about you
  • Extend your comfort zone
  • Take responsibility for mitigating bias
  • Admit mistakes
  • Create structure
  • Evaluate decisions
  • Normalise conversations around bias
  • Promote a culture of honesty, respect, and inclusion
