The Key To Develop Human Potential
One of the most eye-opening activities we do in our work is to put teams and employees together into various groups based on the way they think (and behave) and have them perform challenging tasks of problem-solving and creativity. Without fail, when teams are put in groups where there is diversity in thinking styles, they come to the conclusion that diversity in thought is a clear booster of the way they work and their performance. In most cases, this realization is buoyed by the actual results of the exercise—more creative, comprehensive solutions reached more quickly.
It’s a powerful message, but some of the power is due to a lack of diversity in thinking styles in many organizations, particularly in the reaches of upper management. There’s a reason people are leaders, the conventional wisdom would state—right? Well, not so fast. What happens when one leader is effective? Organizations have a tendency to clone the thinking, behavioral, and personality styles of that leader. The danger quickly becomes group-think or solutions that only meet a portion of the problem.
Diversity of thought brings clear advantages to the table:
Your target markets and audiences are diverse and made up of the full gamut of thinking and behavioral styles; utilize in-house resources to ensure communication is on point across the board.
With diversity in thinking styles, the creative process becomes a more combative (in a good way) formula, where the best ideas rise and usually are a combination of many perspectives.
When employees know their thinking and behavioral styles are appreciated, engagement and the propensity to contribute goes up.
When cognitive diversity is touted and appreciated, employees see that differences go beyond culture, race, gender, experience, etc. and can understand that these too must be valued.
With a cognitively diverse workforce, employees can more easily find those who think and behave in their preferred format and accentuate their strengths to become more proficient more quickly.
