Three new Skill Paths on one of the most useful qualities in business today!
If you want to stimulate your colleagues’ curiosity – and your own – to boost engagement and innovation, don’t miss our three brand-new Skill Paths on curiosity, developed with business behavioral expert Diane Hamilton.
Unleash Curiosity for Engagement and Innovation in a nutshell
Curiosity can play a major role at work. It is the catalyst for a variety of skills and attributes critical to the success of an organization, such as decision making, conflict resolution, strategic thinking, and many more. 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 Skill Paths explain the factors that can lead to a stifled curiosity and its consequences in business. 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.
Three great Skill Paths to reap all the benefits of a more curious workplace:
- Break Past the Roadblocks to Curiosity
It’s quite common to squelch your own curiosity for any number of reasons, such as fear of rocking the boat, being used to certain ways of thinking, or becoming so dependent on tech tools that you never look under the hood and ask questions. This course shows the range of factors that might be blocking your curiosity—whether you’re aware of them or not—and how to achieve curiosity breakthroughs for better innovation, performance, and teamwork.
- Harness Curiosity for Productivity and Engagement with Colleagues
If a sense of wonder and urge to question the familiar isn’t present in your daily work, it’s not just a problem for your enthusiasm for what you do, it can also negatively impact your performance. This course shows what curiosity offers people in all fields and how to proactively get more curious.
- Bring Curiosity into Leadership
Curiosity may not come naturally to leaders, who have often risen up the ranks due to other talents, but being curious and instilling curiosity in team members is a key factor for leadership success. This course outlines the practices for doing both.
