Summary

From technology to business, two (or more) heads often prove to be better than one - but only if those heads are cognitively diverse. Diverse perspectives are a powerful tool for maximizing productivity and enhancing collective performance. Now, in The Hidden Factor: Why Thinking Differently Is Your Greatest Asset, you can learn the strategies that make you a more diverse thinker and position you to break down institutional silos and build robust, effective teams. 

Delivered by Professor Scott E. Page of the University of Michigan - a pioneering researcher in his field - these 24 thought-provoking lectures are packed with case studies, cautionary tales, and formal mathematical methods that prove the case for cognitive difference.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Lovely

The title doesn't give this course enough credit

Gives great tools and examples to help express and prove your intuition on complex scenarios

Great lecturer too, love his style. I'm not sure what he has against skaters though!

Audio of a video presentation

Not practical as an audio book as the lecturer refers to drawings on a whiteboard. Really doesn’t work

Very Good Content, Very Advanced Math

The content is great and well reasoned. It definitely explains how cognitive diversity is crucial. However, it should be warned that his explanations are very mathematical and can be difficult if you're not using the PDF to follow.
