Why?

Powering performance through diversity, inclusivity & engagement
Increasing diversity and inclusion is not an empty slogan — it is a good business decision. Diverse input can have a big impact within organizations looking to ameliorate and mitigate the amount of cognitive bias in their decisions. It also leads to higher engagement, better quality decision-making and better organizational performance, by challenging your brain to overcome its stale ways of thinking and sharpen its performance.

Hierarchical organisations with traditional top-down decision making processes often leave employees feeling unheard, leading to low productivity and retention levels, organizational health, and under-leveraged innovation opportunities. A disengaged workforce not only drains productivity, but often suffer from excessive group think in their decisions. Hierarchical decision-making processes excludes management from good ideas, keeps most out of influencing what organizations do.

The challenge is how best to translate workplace diversity into efficient operational processes that can deliver winning decisions and solutions to boost organizational performance.

Science has proven that diverse teams outperform homogeneous ones.

Why?

Driving Cross Functional Collaboration & improving Distributed Team Performance

Collaboration is a natural part of working in teams, providing different perspectives to spur innovation and increasing momentum of change. Team leaders can be hindered by organizational hierarchies and silos.

Although every team needs some sort of formal structure, its been found that high performing teams that have the greatest success innovating have ways of pushing back on the structure to encourage important cross-functional collaboration.

To drive horizontal collaboration seamlessly, team leaders don’t need to restructure; they need to celebrate new ways of working together. 4

The cornerstone of this new way of working together is to implement a bottom-up decision making process to achieve an effective balance between encouraging engagement and transparency while valuing merit and authority.
