Diversity of Thinking: “The New Frontier”

Most organisations recognise the value of diversity and tick all the demographic boxes of gender, age, race, sexual preference, impairment, religion and ethnicity. However, to really increase performance, companies are now looking beyond demographic diversity.

In a recent study, Deloitte reported that “Diversity of thinking is the new frontier”*. More and more research shows that teams with cognitive diversity (differences in perceiving and processing information) are significantly better and faster at problem-solving, innovating and collaborating.

This interactive session will show you how to leverage thinking diversity and enhance all aspects of business, including leadership, strategic planning, communication, branding and recruitment.
