Come learn strategies to help project teams congeal and function effectively. Diversity in terms of motivation, cognitive process, and social environments is collectively impactful on the cohesion and effective functioning of teams. By way of a cognitive function schema, Kirton’s theory breaks cognition into three domains: cognitive effect, cognitive affect, and cognitive resources. Respectively, these denote cognitive process, motivation, and learning. Considering these as key factors in predicting the cohesion and effective functioning of teams, participants will explore their impact on motivation, behavior, and ultimately performance.
