Today's topic is Bias...your bias. Okay, and my bias. Confirmation bias is well understood in credit analysis, jumping to conclusions too quickly just because revenue is up...or down. But bias can rear its head in many areas.
In this episode we share sobering, recent studies on racial bias in lending, why intentions can cloud judgment, language to use if you, as a manager, need to ‘call out’ bias in direct reports, and how to use the ‘six-month challenge’ to change your own thinking.
