A really interesting article from the Harvard Business Review published earlier this year caught our attention this week.
The article talks about the power of argument. And how arguing can be a good thing for a company, but only if you can train your people do is in a healthy way.
There is much talk around the board table and in the wider business world about diversity and its effect. The article talks about this, and in particular around the need for cognitive diversity.
Research quoted in the article tells us that cognitive diversity makes a group smarter, two heads indeed being better than one. And where many heads or even better, especially when everyone is willing to share their expertise and opinions can be uncomfortable. The article talked through the pros and cons of how to manage the situation at hand.
We found it really interesting. We hope you do too - you can find it here.
