Our Brains on Bias: Reducing the Negative Interference of the Unconscious
1.0 elimination of bias credit applied for
Over 95% of us underestimate how much our bias impacts our thoughts and behaviors. That’s because the vast majority of us have positive intent as we make decisions and interact with others, but we don’t understand how those decisions and interactions are actually driven by our unconscious thoughts and beliefs. To be our most effective in both decision-making and interactions, we need to better understand how our unconscious mind influences us, particularly when bias is involved, and then learn to approach situations differently. In this highly-interactive session, participants discover how our brains naturally create our perceptions and misperceptions. Participants also learn and practice using the SEE Framework© to better understand the complexity of how our brains take in and process information, working with this framework to increase their ability to identify and eventually offset bias.

Directed Trusts: Understanding the Risks and Avoiding Liability

Directed trusts are becoming more common. Many states have adopted specific statutes to address in detail the relationship between the Trustee of a directed trust and the party holding the power to direct. Courts are grappling with complicated disputes related to directed trusts. We must be prepared to handle the unique drafting and liability risks as they develop, such as the following:

  • State laws regarding directed trusts
  • Relationship among directed Trustee, director and beneficiaries
  • Ways to slice and dice duties and responsibilities of trust administration
  • Liability of directed Trustees and party holding the power to direct

Charles A. “Clary” Redd

Planning Options When Farmland Is Owned by a C Corporation

Although farmland should never be put in a C Corporation, what happens when we find out land is inside the corporation? Although some options are drastic there may be options that provide better results with some careful planning to mitigate the tax cost of attempting to remove the land from the corporation. This presentation will set out some examples for consideration.

It’s About Effectiveness: Developing Culturally Competent Teams

1.0 elimination of bias credit applied for
Research tells us that in order for your team to be high-performing it needs two key ingredients: Diversity and the ability of team members to be their most successful and effective as they interact across those differences. Cultural Competence helps us to do just that. Culture comes into play in nearly every interaction. Yet, only 2.5% of us have the competence to see the full complexity of cultural differences and adapt to them to be our most effective. That means the vast majority of us are at best missing key differences that are at play and at worst unintentionally offending others. That’s the bad news. The good news is that we can develop that competence in anyone and any workplace. Based on a five-stage developmental model of CC, this session provides a new, efficient and proven process to measurably and significantly develop CC. Learn from both individual and organizational case studies.
Sara Taylor

The speaker will also offer best practices that can be employed to limit risks in this areas, and recommend advice that estate planning lawyers can give their clients in order to limit risks of cyber fraud, identify theft, and data loss.
