The problem with cultural fit: How your recruitment policy may be tripping up your creativity

Uhrzeit: 17:45 - 18:45
Vortrag: Di 8.4


It's common these days to hear talk of "cultural fit", yet a company made up of people who are too similar is unlikely to bring great creativity or innovative problem-solving no matter how comfortable it might feel. One of our next big challenges will be to understand why and how to embrace and support all kinds of different people in our teams and organisations. This talk uses the backdrop of cognitive bias and the latest research in cognitive diversity to explain why this is important and propel you towards working out how to do so.

Target Audience: Team members, Decision makers, Managers
Prerequisites: none
Level: Expert

Extended Abstract
This talk includes aspects of the latest research on neuro-diversity and cognitive diversity in teams.
It also considers some of the cognitive biases that feed straight into our mis-placed "cultural fit" paradigm and may lead to us inadvertently creating a bland mono-culture.
It dissects what "cultural fit" might really mean.
It suggests things we should consider instead.
