Biases: Beyond Good and Evil

Rebekah Ockens

Presented by

Coaches and therapists are not saints. We experience the same insecurities, societal pressures and conditioning as others. Given our training, we are expected to have higher self-awareness and emotional intelligence. The fact however remains, that we interact with the world through a set of biased lenses. In this presentation, we uncover some of these biases especially in coaching and the therapeutic relationship. We discover what they mean to you and your client – and how they help or hinder your coaching/therapy session even before you meet your client for the very first time. You will learn to ask your client – and yourself! – the right questions to help consciously identify both your sets of biases, and anticipate how their interaction may impact your therapeutic relationship.

For the last 15 years, I work with senior corporate leaders in Europe and Asia. I help them understand their motivations, biases, and derailers through personality profiling, psychological assessments and coaching. 
My work allows me to interact with a diverse audience and the opportunity to see how culture, conditioning, beliefs and biases impact the choices we make in life. 
I help my clients become more conscious of how these often subtle influences impact the decisions they make.
