Event Details

The vast majority is convinced that more diverse teams will outperform less diverse teams - in particular if the project involves innovation. Their argument is familiar: The different perspectives, ideas and opinions are essential in achieving breakthrough performance in competitive environments. But is this really true?

In this session, Professor Henrik Bresman, INSEAD, will share groundbreaking new research on the dynamics of diverse teams and their performance, focusing on the critical role of psychological safety. Professor Bresman has examined how teams with diverse backgrounds often face communication challenges that hinder their potential. Contrary to popular belief, diversity alone does not guarantee superior performance; rather, teams must foster psychological safety to unlock innovation and productivity.

Professor Bresman will discuss practical strategies derived from his findings, aimed at creating environments where diverse teams thrive. These strategies include framing meetings to encourage diverse perspectives, employing effective inquiry techniques to promote open dialogue, and fostering bridges between team members to enhance collaboration.

This event presents a unique opportunity for anyone navigating diverse team dynamics to learn invaluable insights into enhancing team performance and harnessing the capabilities that can truly elevate a team's success.
