Cognitive Diversity

Harnessing the collective intelligence of your business

Research shows that individuals and teams with diverse thinking – a variety of experience, expertise, and opinions – are much better equipped to deal with complex problems and have higher levels of collective intelligence.

Cognitive diversity can strengthen any institution or team; it challenges hierarchies, encourages constructive dissent, and forces us to think again about where the best ideas really come from. It also offers individuals the ability to improve personal performance by breaking free from the echo chambers that surround us all.

Diverse thinking drives better team outcomes, such as greater creativity, stronger problem solving, and overall performance. Key behaviours, practices and techniques can help you make the most of cognitive diversity in your team and organisation

Below are some of our behaviour change products that we use to achieve this:
