Discover two brand-new courses on one of today’s most essential human qualities in business!
We are excited to bring to you two new Path to Performance (P2P) courses on Curiosity for Engagement and Innovation that we have developed with business behavioral expert Diane Hamilton. The first targets everyone, while the second is specifically aimed at managers and leaders.
If you want to reap all the benefits of a culture of curiosity and learn how to encourage curiosity in yourself and your colleagues, then this course is for you!
Unleash Curiosity for Engagement and Innovation in a nutshell
We all need to better understand the role curiosity plays in our lives, as it is the catalyst for a variety of skills and attributes critical to the success of an organization, such as decision making, conflict resolution, employee engagement, innovation, productivity, effective selling, problem-solving, strategic thinking, and many more.
It is, in short, the key to unlocking human potential. The problem is that while our sense of curiosity is innate, it tends to wane or deteriorate as we age. But it doesn’t have to be that way. These two courses explain the factors that can inhibit curiosity as well as the consequences of stifled curiosity in business, and addresses how we can counteract this phenomenon. You will discover how to unleash your own curiosity and how to contribute toward building a culture of curiosity in your organization. Opening yourself up to new areas of knowledge and different ways of approaching work will energize you and your colleagues, boost your creativity and make you happier.
Through this course, you will learn:
- How and why we should reverse the decrease in curiosity with age in order to improve our strategic thinking, decisions, productivity, motivation, and more
- How people at all levels of an organization achieve more through gaining conscious awareness of curiosity and how it can be improved.
