Brief Abstract

The key to collaborating effectively is respecting “intellectual diversity,” the ways in which we think and process information differently. Each of us brings unique and varied thinking talents to the table, and when we understand intellectual diversity, we can work together more effectively. Through fascinating exercises and revealing case studies, Angie McArthur teaches audiences how to discover their own unique mind patterns and thinking talents, and how to recognize the same in others.
