Do you consider yourself technical? What about peers in other roles? How does your perception of someone’s technical experience influence your behavior? We often refer to certain roles as “technical”, but everyone has a variety of experience and deep specialty. Despite our best intentions to treat everyone equal we may unconsciously discriminate against others based on our assumptions of their technical experience. This can result in unfairly modifying our interactions with certain roles, when quite likely coworkers in all roles could benefit from breadth and detail in our conversation.
During this talk, learn how to recognize and modify your experience bias to improve performance and morale.
Learn from two associates in roles with drastically different technical perceptions, one focused on project management and business intelligence and one focused software development and operations. Explore how each have altered their behavior to better engage and respect peers in all roles with different technical experience backgrounds.
