Maximising Cognitive Diversity
Learn the importance of leveraging cognitive diversity through research and develop best practices to ensure inclusive behaviour at all stages of the talent life cycle
Unlike many more visible diversity factors (age, gender, ethnicity, etc.), one's thinking style or cognitive diversity traits can be hard to identify just by looking at them. By learning to both understand and leverage the cognitive diversity within our organisations and work groups, we can create new and better solutions to the problems we face in the workplace.
We will use interactive activities and engaging conversations to explore our own individual thinking styles, their strengths and potential blindspots. We will explore potential unconscious biases to develop best practices that ensure we are supporting cognitive diversity at every stage in the talent life cycle (including recruitment, onboarding/development, assessment/promotion and retention/engagement) to create an inclusive workplace that will lead to superior results.
- Learn the importance of leveraging cognitive diversity through research and examples from real organisations
- Explore the 4 keys areas of cognitive diversity (perspectives, interpretations, heuristics, and predictive models)
- Develop best practices to ensure inclusive behaviour at all stages of the talent life cycle
