Driven by Difference How Great Companies Fuel Innovation Through Diversity by David Livermore
This on demand audio is a part of the Game Changer Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews David Livermore. The original live interview was 6/03/16.
Today’s workforce is more diverse than ever before. But despite new perspectives and talents, the promise of increased innovation rarely materializes. Why are so few businesses seeing results? Studies show that diverse teams are more creative than homogenous ones–but only when they are managed effectively.
The secret is to minimize conflict while maximizing the informational diversity found in varied values and experiences. To do this, both leaders and team members need a high level of cultural intelligence, or CQ. Driven by Difference identifies the management practices necessary to guide multicultural teams to innovation.
David Livermore, Ph.D., is President and Partner at the Cultural Intelligence Center, a consultancy at the forefront of CQ assessment and development. The author of Leading with Cultural Intelligence, he has been cited by The Economist, Forbes, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal.
