Decoding the Complexity of Diversity book
In Part II of the book human niche theory was unpacked and explained. In this part, Part III, the lens shifts to the individual domain as visually presented in Figure 2.2. Scholars and organizational development practitioners seldom integrate aspects of the psyche such as personality, emotional intelligence and complexity handling ability. Human niches are often also not incorporated into an understanding of the make-up of the human psyche. By not studying all the different aspects, one-sided assumptions are made. The impact on business decision-making by various aspects of the psyche is often ignored. An integral approach towards understanding the individual in organizations becomes important and is the focus of this chapter. By integrating human niches into the description of the functioning of the human psyche, true diversity of thought can materialize.
