Matt will more specifically be giving a talk on “Aren’t We All Just a Little Bit Prejudiced?”
“It’s human nature to make judgments about things based on past interactions and experiences. Prejudging a situation or person is natural. People do it intrinsically and often immediately. Where individuals sometimes fail is in how they interact with others based solely upon those thoughts and feelings. This lecture is a candid look at how people gauge their perception of others. It brings home the idea that setting high expectations for everyone, while understanding the nature of their difference, is how to get the best out of people while helping them maximize their potential. In his presentation, Matt guides people to grow from their interactions with others regardless of their individual differences.”
