NEW Class Spotlight: Beyond Bias – How We Naturally Form Perceptions
January 20, 2022
Virginia REALTORS® offers several free career skills courses for members to take at their leisure. We have a variety to offer in our Learning Center. This month, we’re spotlighting the new Beyond Bias: How We Naturally Form Perceptions course.
Unconscious bias is a phenomenon that all humans engage as a mechanism to help explain and understand our surroundings. Unfortunately, it can inhibit our interactions and make us draw conclusions that are incorrect. Being able to recognize these biases, fully understand how we process information, and know strategies to avoid negative implications creates for a well-balanced work environment. The SEE Model is used as a way to slow down our immediate responses and provide a step-by-step breakdown the experience. Strategies are presented to assist in the reprogramming of our innate reactions and allow for more open interactions.
Check out the Learning Center to take the class. It’s only 20 minutes long and includes a great tool set of skills to add your knowledge bank.
