Overcoming Projection Bias In The Workplace

Projecting our thoughts, beliefs, feelings, or traits onto others can greatly influence how we perceive people and situations. Unfortunately, this tendency often leads us to form incorrect or misguided understandings of those we interact with and the circumstances we encounter.

In the workplace, this bias manifests in various ways, generating different consequences for employee relationships, decision-making processes, motivation, the work environment, and overall company culture.

To ensure more accurate perceptions of the people and situations around us, we need to eliminate biases that interfere with our judgment, including the projection bias.
