The world is now so complex that many problems are beyond the scope of any single individual. Interdisciplinary teams are often formed to apply their diverse knowledge (diversity in what their members know) to address these tough problems. In his presentation Dr. Basadur will discuss how to build HOT teams to achieve breakthrough results by harnessing a new kind of diversity (diversity in how the members think). The presentation will demonstrate how HOT teams follow a specific, easy to understand step by step process which synchronizes their diverse problem solving styles to simplify complex problem solving. Min will also introduce his audience to an on-line assessment tool that identifies each team member’s unique problem solving style and will provide real world application examples. Mr. Basadur’s presentation will be entertaining, fun and interactive and will provide concrete takeaways.
