Diversity is often seen as a contentious issue. This webinar examines the notion of cognitive and other forms of diversity as they pertain to corporations and the corporate board. We look at the core value proposition of diversity of thought to understand how boards can leverage it to optimize board performance. Stephen discusses how to manage cognitive impediments to change and diversity, such as cognitive biases, blind spots, groupthink, and dominant logic. Stephen considers how to apply insights from complex social systems and dynamics to optimize board effectiveness.
