Course Outline:

Mediators and communication experts understand how Unconscious Bias impacts heavily on negotiation, conflict and dispute resolution.  This workshop will offer you the opportunity to increase self-awareness, learn new information and get up to speed with the latest research on Unconscious Bias.  The workshop takes us beneath the surface level of unconscious bias concepts in order to understand the topic from a deeper micro level.

Our micro responses to outside stimuli whether it be other people, images or events happens in less time than it takes to blink.  Even an awareness of this occurring does not mean we are able to control or stop this happening.  Body language that appears to be positive is easily devalued by inappropriate micro expressions that are read as being negative.

Have you ever had a polite and apparently positive conversation with someone but still felt a sense of unease and that something was not quite right?

This may be because the signals your unconscious mind is receiving do not match the surface impressions the other person is apparently conveying.

So Micro-Messages are small, semi-conscious signals we send and receive that tell others what we really think and feel.  Typically we send 2,000 to 4,000 positive and negative micro-messages each day.

This workshop provides a forum to allow participants to explore:

  • Why micro level communication is important
  • How to read micro expressions
  • How to enhance your emotional awareness
  • Spotting deception and truth
  • Tools for spotting micro expressions
  • How does it impact conflict and the mediation of disputes?
  • How does it manifest itself in the workplace?

By the end of this workshop, participants will:

  • Be able to describe micro expressions and micro inequities
  • Recognise when they are present and how best to interpret
  • Recognise the impact micro expressions and micro inequities have on communication, relationships and the values we are trying to portray
  • Be able to self-reflect, recognize, and use micro signals more effectively
