Trust your gut! Do what feels right! Trusting your intuition and making decisions on autopilot could lead to devastating results in your relationships. Your autopilot of comfort is adapted from ancestral fight or flight. Today’s world is whizzing with technological advances that may hinder our connection with ourselves and others. Our ability to communicate and problem-solve intensifies how we understand and process information. To solve mental blind spots in communication and improve relationships, we must debias our thoughts to strengthen relationships. Join Dr. Tanner to understand!

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • identify where judgement errors may be playing a role in relationships.
  • how cognitive bias hindered people in the past, is hindering them now and may hinder you in the future.
  • develop a scientific plan to address your cognitive bias.
