Collaborative forum description
Although humans have evolved over millions of years to be basically similar in cognitive structures, we are hugely diverse in factors such as temperament, physical attributes and cognitive processing. Some of those differences are associated with diversity in terms of the way our brains are wired; some are around how sensitive we are to emotional stimuli.
During this forum we will examine how differences in cognitive and emotional factors are manifest in terms of social behaviours in organisations, in other words how do we treat each other when we work in teams, and how can we improve those behaviours knowing a little about how our minds work.
We can consider how threat perception affects the decisions made in team contexts, and how to develop resilience enabling better quality decisions to be made.
