Overcoming Cognitive Bias in Talent Management

Brigitte Steinheider, Ph.D. 

August 14, 2018 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

To be successful, organizations need to capitalize on the knowledge, skills and abilities of a diverse work force and select and promote the best qualified employees. Research, however, shows that our decision making is often not rational, that we select candidates based on their similarity to ourselves, and that both interview processes as well as performance reviews are biased despite raters’ best intentions. Especially employee selection and performance reviews are prone to be biased, and new interview techniques and ‘cutting edge’ performance appraisal techniques were developed to increase rating accuracy.  

In this session, participants will learn some of the most common biases, experience their own biases, and learn techniques to overcome cognitive biases in talent management.

This workshop aligns with the foundational functions of ‘industry knowledge’ and developing a ‘global mindset’ and TD’s competence areas of coaching, performance improvement and integrated talent management.
