Cognitive Diversity at board level

Cognitive diversity is no longer the gold standard for firms. It’s like folding our arms after presenting a thought experiment.

Oftentimes, we still need to go that extra mile with an actual experiment to test the validity of the thought experiment. In simple terms, real people acquire wisdom from lived experiences.

Furthermore, the constitution of a board reflects the essence and it’s also a true reflection of the brand when the PR frills are removed.

The good news is, forward thinking firms see both the moral and economic arguments for demographically diverse boards.

Fixed mindset v Growth mindset

Thought Leaders Series: 2019

The issue with religious folks (all faiths) lies in their understanding and interpretation of ‘reality’.

For religious folks reality is subjective, therefore events and history is subjective. In other words reality is seen only through the theological or doctrinal tenets of their ‘sacred text’.

The issue here is that these sacred texts were in fact written by thinkers and philosophers who were themselves trying to make sense of the complexities of their world. If these folks were alive today they would have corrected most of their errors themselves.

But because these texts are deemed sacred, they stay fixed. As a result religious folks often operate with a fixed mindset, as to a growth mindset which opens up new possibilities for knowledge acquisition, understanding and progress.

The Task Upon Us

Thought Leaders Series: 2018

The writers of the religious texts which form the basis of most known faith traditions were trying to make sense of their world, challenging social norms, and offering a moral vision of how communities, kingdoms and states can function effectively.

Some of their ideas are enduring, while others are shortsighted. Therefore, instead of treating these texts as absolutes, the task upon us is to challenge those that are shortsighted and the people and institutions peddling them, and present better alternatives of how our world should function in age of globalisation, democracy and technological advancement.
