Bev Lutz ICF membership provides incredible professional networking opportunities, professional and personal growth, and opportunities to explore my strengths as I volunteer in service of my profession.  My chapter really helps me stay current with coaching, thought leadership, and learn-n-earn (CEU’s) from professional development events.  But it’s the supportive coach-friends and collaborators who have made membership for me priceless. //

Implicit Bias: How Our Paradigms Shape What We See


SPEAKER: Andre Koen | Educator | Speaker | Diversity Coordinator


DATE: Tuesday, December 8, 2020


TIME: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM




CEU’S: 2 Core Competency


We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are. We bring our experiences with us and they frame the context around how we see the world. This context allows us to hide our biases without even knowing we have them. We call this unconscious bias and this session will help explore what we should do with our unconscious bias and how to move towards cognitive control.


This session will be interactive and engage attendees in thoughtful and meaningful conversations which help them understand the impact context has on one’s current paradigm, how to identify when a paradigm no longer serves us, and state the difference between unconscious bias, implicit bias and bigotry.



Communicating Effectively -- Active Listening, Powerful Questioning

Facilitating Learning and Results -- Creating Awareness, Designing Actions


Participants will:

· Recognize the impact context has on one’s current paradigm

· Identify their current paradigm and its impact on coaching

· Identify when their paradigm no longer serves them

· State the difference between unconscious bias, implicit bias and bigotry
