Challenging Mental Structures, Biases and Habits at Work


Why We Did It

Are our morning routines conscious decisions or activities that we carry-out on “auto-pilot” Are they repetitive learnt behaviours or are we in control of them? We aim to challenge ourselves and the paradigms that guide our lives, questioning if we truly consent to them and if they are right for us. 

These social routines enable the creation of personal mental structures and biases. Cognitive biases are mental shortcuts (known as heuristics) and they actually make a lot of sense: they’re designed to help humans survive as hunter-gatherers. Biases often result in accurate thinking, but they’re also risky. Biases can make us prone to the errors as they can block innovation, in the knowledge economy that we live in. Biases can restrict the creative process, and looking for innovative outcomes.

Our habits are built from what we think, and they help design the life we live, let’s carry out the design process consciously. Let’s create better habits and work routines.

We talked about

  • Where paradigms come from 
  • Cognitive biases and mental structures
  • How to identify and unlearn toxic habits, and build better ones

What people say?

Bringing Fuckup to AstraZeneca, raised the quality of our events and opened up a topic of discussion that we had not explored enough in our community. This resulted in an event which was fresh and full of learnings!
Fuckup Nights came to Sanofi when we were in the middle of our process of cultural transformation, we were looking for ways to think out of the box and to show our collaborators that daring and failing are synonymous with personal and professional learning and development.

Fuckup Nights is a global movement and event series that shares stories of professional failure. Each month, in events across the globe, we get three to four people to get up in front of a room full of strangers to share their own professional fuckup. The stories of the business that crashes and burns, the partnership deal that goes sour, the product that has to be recalled, we tell them all.
