Unlocking natural intelligence: How to look inside your brain

As AI becomes ever more woven into our work lives, we see two common unhelpful responses: some people fear and distrust it, while others use it indiscriminately, effectively delegating their thinking. There's a more helpful way to harness artificial intelligence by accessing our natural intelligence first. And it's also a great way to increase inclusivity, diversity and empathy in the workplace.
