We know that different people have different ways to tackle the world and when people from these different culture interact in one place or one company,and the manger want them to be one hand and To make these differences in thinking be in the interest of the company.
Because today’s complex products demand integrating the expertise of individuals who do not innately understand one another. Today’s pace of change demands that these individuals quickly develop the ability to work together. If abrasion is not managed into creativity, it will constrict the constructive impulses of individuals and organizations alike. Rightly harnessed, the energy released by the intersection of different thought processes will propel innovation

1. Comfortable Clone Syndrome: is the desire to surround ourselves with people who think and act like we do to avoid conflict and the discomfort of being around others who are simply, in our eyes, strange and difficult. 2. Unable to manage employees with a variety of thinking styles
Understand Yourself When you identify your style you will gain insight of your preferences in thinking and communication. Your style can repress the very creativity you seek from you employee
Don’t treat people the way you want to be treated Tailor the communication to the receiver instead of the sender In a cognitively diverse environment, a message sent is not necessarily a message received Information must be delivered in the preferred “language” of the recipient if it is to be received at all

An ugly duckling is someone who grew up feeling unattractive, with low resultant self esteem, and often a good personality to compensate. that person blossoms into an attractive person, but retains the good personality. This syndrome can occur in the workplace as well; an employee might start slow, with below average productivity and success, but become successful and productive later in his career.
Successful managers spend time getting members of divers groups acknowledge their differences often through a joint exploration of the results of a diagnostic analysis and devise guidelines for working together before attempting to action the problem at hand Set common goals Make operation guide lines explicit Set up agendas ahead of time
People who do not understand cognitive preferences tend to personalize conflict, avoid it Varying approaches to perceiving and assimilating data, making decisions, solving problems, and relating to other people, these approaches are preferences Every one has a preferred habit of thought that influences how they make decisions and interact with others
Diagnostic instrument only measure one aspect of personality: preferences in thinking styles and communication Preferences tend to be stable but life experience can affect them.
In today's organizations multiple view points need to be taken into account and effective understanding of different human personality has not altered through out recorded history. problem solving methodologies can help the innovation process.People have always had distinct preferences in their approaches to problem solving.
