Understanding Unconscious Bias (Online Classroom)

This online classroom will help you understand bias, recognise we all have them, and more importantly challenge your reactions to them. £30 per coach.

This online session aims to raise awareness that we all have biases. It is part of being human and was an important element in protecting us back in the cave days. Today, however, as we have evolved, we should be able to recognise our biases, and therefore change our response to them. By doing this we will become more tolerant of, and welcoming to difference.

No matter what role you have in coaching (helper, assistant coach, head coach, coaching manager) this unmissable session will appeal to you and really get you thinking.

By becoming more conscious of the decisions you make and actions you take, you will be taking another important step on the path to becoming a truly great coach.

The course has been awarded 3 CPD points by the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA).

This session will help you:

  • notice examples of unconscious bias in others 
  • consider your own biases, and how these can distort your judgement about the people who come to your sessions
  • learn strategies to help you become more conscious of your biases so that you can reduce their influence
  • examine the common types of unconscious bias: affinity bias, confirmation bias and group think.

Invites will be sent to people who have attended this online classroom for a follow-up Community of Practice session, where you will continue to explore how to make better decisions in coaching through the lens of ‘unconscious bias’.

You can access the online classroom through your mobile phone, tablet, PC or laptop – however some functionality can be limited using a mobile device. Don’t worry, it will still be a great session! 

The online classroom is powered by WebEx. To test access to this software and learn how to connect using different devices, click here.

You don’t need a lot of kit to get involved:

  • headset or a device with speakers
  • device with a microphone
  • ability to connect directly into your router (WiFi access may drop out).

It is £30 to book onto this course as an individual coach. For organisations/partners who want to book a closed session, the price is £275.

We will be in touch to:

  1. Confirm your booking
  2. Send you a link to your session
  3. Tell you your certificate is ready to view on your dashboard (after your session).

This session will run for around 90 minutes to 2 hours. It depends on the flow of the session – we don’t like to cut people off while they are learning!  

You are part of a small group (up to 12 people) so you will have a chance to discuss points and ask questions – as if you are in a face to face workshop, only you get to sit in your own chair and drink a real cuppa in your own mug and not something brown from a vending machine!
