Free Webinar /// Motivation and Bias: Strategies for Developing Greater Self-Awareness and Observational Skills

Virtual Event
Wednesday, 06/03/2020 @ 10:00-11:00am EDT

Our motivations play an important role in how we understand ourselves and the world. We all operate with assumptions, mindsets and expectations that we are sometimes less conscious of and which are likely to be influenced by our deeper motivational orientations. By understanding the links between motivational patterns and hidden biases, we can expand our self-awareness, achieve a more complete and objective view of others, and make wiser behavioural choices.
