During a trip to London, we spoke with Anna Ostergren – a former theatre director who now coaches business leaders. In this interview, we speak about body language, the impact of first impressions, and how quickly we judge other people on non-verbal cues.
This leads to a discussion on biases, how to be aware of them, and how this can affect the interview situation.
During the Selection-phase of any recruitment process Bias Awareness is critical to make the best possible decisions. We all have different biases and they affect our judgement and evaluation of a person and those cognitive biases might heavily influence hiring decisions.
Anna walks us through how quickly those judgement calls are made and also gives Per and Daniel some feedback on their posture throught the video.
