As the world changes, there is one constant truth: only those who adapt can survive.’ In this session, we’ll look at the work of Matthew Syed, author of Sunday Times’ best-selling book ‘Rebel Ideas’. Great teams rarely happen by accident; they happen by design. To solve today’s complex problems, we must harness the power of ‘cognitive diversity’. We’ll explore some of the best-kept secrets of the world’s most successful teams.

We’ll also look at how we can implement a growth culture and the difference it could have on performance – for individuals and for organisations as a whole.
