The HR West Conference announced that Paul Meshanko, Author, Speaker and President/Owner of Legacy Business Cultures will be speaking in March 2019 on the topic of “Blindsided: Managing Cognitive and Implicit Biases.”

In this session, conference attendees will learn applicable steps for detecting when our brains operate in “bias mode” and how to redirect critical decisions, responses and interactions back to the logical and more rational centers of the brain. Fans of Paul Meshanko get $100 off conference registration when they use promo code PRESENTER19.

Since the world doesn’t slow down just for us, our brains devise shortcuts to help us make decisions (including how we treat others) more quickly. This interactive session embarks on a fascinating exploration of the hidden mechanisms and tendencies the human brain unconsciously uses to make decisions and respond to situations around us. Learn to identify both cognitive and implicit biases and to make more impartial, rational decisions.

March 11-13, 2019 will bring three days of professional development, insightful discussions, networking, and practical tools for attendees to take back to their workplaces. Attendees create their own attendee experience with more than 80 concurrent sessions (most for HR recertification credits) to address specific professional and organizational needs.

As the premiere HR conference on the West Coast, the HR West Conference selection committee receives hundreds of speaker proposals for the concurrent session slots and scores them based on the conference’s prestigious criteria. Paul Meshanko was selected in a highly competitive speaker proposal selection process.
