Invisible Wisdom: The Value of Diverse Groups

Some Questions We'll Consider ...


Despite ample evidence of the pragmatic value of diverse people working together, what prevents us from automatically recognizing and valuing many points of view? It's no surprise people tend to prefer working with those who are like themselves, those who agree with us, when we know intellectually that diversity adds wisdom....especially when it comes to work and business. What outmoded thinking prevents us from realizing the "wisdom of crowds"?
