How to Build Curiosity: The Key to Improving Innovation, Engagement and Productivity
Performance Dr. Diane Hamilton Nov 14, 2019
Employees can be more innovative, engaged and productive by improving their natural curiosity, but they must be trained to do so and be rewarded for their efforts. Harvard Business Review found that while 83 percent of C-suite executives believe they encourage curiosity, only 52 percent of employees feel they are rewarded for their curiosity—and are therefore less likely to provide innovative ideas to the organization. HR professionals and leaders can benefit from recent groundbreaking research discoveries regarding what affects curiosity. Once organizations recognize and overcome the four factors that hold people back from being curious, they can develop training and development plans to unleash it.
