Coaching Science Community of Practice - Unleashing Employees’ Curiosity to Improve Innovation

Dr. Diane Hamilton joins the Coaching Science Community of Practice to present on the importance of curiosity in the workplace. 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. The Harvard Business Review found that while 83% of C-suite executives believe they encourage curiosity, only 52% of employees feel they are rewarded for their curiosity—and are therefore less likely to provide innovative ideas to the organization. Coaches, consultants, 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.
