Terms that define the word bias include prejudice, partiality, favoritism, one-sidedness, leaning and tendency.
We all have biases. They are major factors in our decision-making. Like an invisible force operating under the radar, our biases stealthily move to shape the way we influence and lead others, yet we don’t like to admit they even exist. Unfortunately, wherever bias rules unchecked, there is chaos, dissention, hurt and distrust. When bias is recognized and consciously set aside, however, unity, trust, forgiveness and commitment will flourish.
