Cognitive Diversity

Cognitive Diversity

Cognitive diversity is about creating a team composed by  people who have different styles of problem-solving and can offer unique perspectives because they think differently. Differently from demographic diversity, which focuses on achieving a mixture of characteristics such as gender or age, cognitive diversity is about achieving a mixture of how people carry out intellectual activities, such as making associations or drawing conclusions.

People who bring different perspectives might see threats and opportunities that others may miss. This chemistry of human interaction has now become a fundamental component of innovation.

Positive measurable correlation has emerged between teams who embrace cognitive diversity, and teams who exhibit high performance levels. Because of this, companies can improve their productivity by inspiring management to provide a robust level of psychological safety for their employees.
