Do you ever have a first impression of someone without any context about them?

That’s called unconscious bias, and it’s something we all have. In a world where connecting is more important than ever, though, we need techniques to manage the shortcuts our brains so often take and which lead to judgements about people and groups.

In a business context, your implicit biases could end up creating issues such as hiring the wrong candidate for a job, misunderstanding or offending your customers, or undervaluing talented employees and causing them to leave.
