    The mind science experts at the Perception Institute present an online workshop to help members avoid implicit bias in their daily business interactions. Drawing upon the latest evidence-based research, Perception explains how our brains’ automatic, instant association of stereotypes with particular groups can cause us to treat those who are different from us unfairly, despite our best intentions and often without our conscious awareness. Perception then applies these concepts to the everyday work of REALTORS® and offers strategies to override bias in order to convey respect, ensure fairness, and improve business relationships.

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.
