You are kindly invited to attend the conference that will follow the ILA Annual General Meeting.
This event will take place at KBL
on 5 June at 17:30.
The topic will be "Diversity of thinking, teams and high performance" by our guest speakerJuliet Bourke
, Human Capital Consulting Partner in Deloitte Australia.
The value of diversity of thinking to team performance makes intuitive sense. It has been said that if everyone thinks the same, then no-one is thinking. Research reveals that diverse teams can reduce errors associated with groupthink by up to 30% and increase the quality of innovation by up to 20%.
But what is “diversity of thinking”? How can leaders identify if team members are applying different mental models to solve problems? And how do they create an environment in which different voices are heard and not crushed? Juliet Bourke, author of “Which two heads are better than one?”, will talk about 6 different ways people approach problem solving and what it means to be an inclusive leader.
We will close this afternoon with the Award Ceremony of ILA Certified Directors, followed by a networking cocktail.
ILA would like to thank KBL for hosting our event and offering the cocktail.
