Using Cognitive Diversity to Build Powerful Teams
High functioning teams can outperform individuals by reducing individual human bias and error, fostering creativity, improving efficiency and problem solving.
Teams who deliberately cultivate cognitive diversity achieve more. However, the very diversity that drives success can lead to team conflict. For teams to excel, leaders need to:
- Assemble cognitively diverse teams
- Develop processes to leverage and harness this diversity productively
In this workshop, participants will:
- Learn about their own cognitive style
- Explore how to use the knowledge of individuals’ cognitive styles to form teams
- Learn how to lead these diverse teams effectively to achieve peak performance
