Lloyd Manders

Small groups make big decisions. Lloyd's mission is to support teams and boards with their decision-making by providing them with research-based tools so they can face complexity with confidence.

He developed an interest in the link between group decision-making and diverse thinking through his original background in communication science and more recent experience serving on governance boards.

Valuing different thinking is often not easy but it’s worth the effort. Greater diversity of thought enables groups to make better choices when addressing complex problems - by guarding against unchallenged, deficient decision-making (‘groupthink’) and creating capability to generate more innovative and comprehensive options for challenges and opportunities.
