At the NGLCC conference in Chicago,  Jim Turley, CEO of Ernst and Young, commented that highly diverse teams tend to be very highly successful or exhibit poor performance.  He suggested that corporate culture was a major influence.  Openness to other perspectives is a key part of this corporate culture.  Listening is ultimately at the heart of this.  This reinforces my favorite YouTube by Tom Peters on strategic listening.  If we listen well, we have the opportunity to understand the various perspectives that can drive us to an optimum solution.
