Beyond traditional diversity - Cognitive Diversity


I recently spoke with a leader of a large organization about the push towards diversity in most organizations, and its value.  While traditional gender, race, and age diversity come to mind, it is becoming increasingly important to consider cognitive diversity.  

This is explained in this short video.

Diversity of thought is at the core of how great decisions are made.  That is why, at Checkster, our reference checking service and all our tools are based on the gathering of Collective Intelligence, where the diversity of thought is embraced.
