Unconscious Bias & Emotional Intelligence: Huddersfield


Most organisations know that Unconscious Bias & Emotional Intelligence play a vital role in enabling them to embrace diversity & inclusion and cultivate effective leadership. But often there is a disconnect between the ‘knowing’ and effectively ‘doing’!

If you want to learn how to implement strategies that will raise awareness of the ‘unconscious’ mental processes that impact everyday decision making and improve management of self and others through impactful behavioural change learning solutions, then our free to attend event is for you.

A half-day event

On Wednesday 15 November 2017 we will be showcasing elements of our Unconscious Bias and Emotional Intelligence training and learning development programmes in Huddersfield.

In a dynamic 3 hour ‘taster’ session, delegates will experience how we use a combination of multimedia resources, electronic voting, expert facilitation and dramatized scenes using professional actors to deliver highly engaging training that turns learning into action.

It’s a highly interactive, powerful way to explore behaviours, one that’s going to be mainly of interest to Human Resources, Equality & Diversity and Learning & Development professionals.

Here’s what delegates who attended our most recent session in London said about it:

“Really well delivered.” “Rosie [the lead facilitator] is fantastic, engaging and knowledgeable.”

“It was well run and engaging.” “Thank you for an interactive and fun session.”

“Enjoyed the style, interaction & involvement.”

The programme

The event will cover a wide range of material, including:

  • Unconscious Bias – raising awareness and understanding of this powerful natural process and its implications
  • Emotional Intelligence – engage in experiential exercises designed to increase understanding of self and others to develop effective communication and cooperation
  • Tools of the trade – introducing a selection of experiential, drama-based training tools and techniques
  • User feedback – sharing evaluation results, client and user perspectives on this alternative approach to training and learning development
