The New Competitive Advantage
Cognitive Collaboration - The New Competitive Advantage
As management consultants we are often called on to help clients empower their workforce to generate higher performance, build teams that work together more effectively, and create training that drives business results.
No matter the industry or discipline, getting to a level of collaboration that brings about success means getting a true baseline on people. What makes each team member tick? What cognitive blueprint drove their decisions and thought process? Knowing how to harness a team’s cognitive diversity can lead to true collaboration and outstanding business performance.
On September 10, Megan Hartman, Regional Account Manager, Emergenetics International, will lead IMCNCR members and guests in an interactive workshop exploring cognitive diversity in the workplace and new ways to develop more collaborative teams. Cognitive Collaboration - The New Competitive Advantage program uses a case-study approach. Participants will examine real-world examples of how a common language has transformed workplaces, and learn a proven framework for applying diversity to foster team collaboration and the performance of tasks in more creative, effective ways.
Ms Hartman will address broad themes including how to:
- Identify the potential challenges that individuals and teams face when presented with thinking and behavior diversity.
- Develop strategies to create the balance that is crucial for sustained high performance.
- Use an action plan for identifying and harnessing individual strengths, then understanding how to apply them to boost collaborative work.
- Put an Emergenetics tool into practice to identify cognitive diversity and to facilitate cognitive collaboration in your organization.
