All human and organizational development begins with curiosity. Within organizations, named or not, curiosity is embedded in nearly every people process, from strategy to execution to evaluation. Unfortunately, for many, the power of curiosity is often overlooked. This workshop details the four components of curiosity with participants gaining a fresh perspective of openness, inquisitiveness, problem solving, and distress tolerance as defined below:
Openness: the mindset to “hold” a different perspective long enough to examine it
Inquisitiveness: the mindset to actively seek out the new and unfamiliar
Creativity: the act of applying the insights discovered through being curious
Distress Tolerance: the strength of mind to manage the stress associated with bringing curiosity insights into the organization
Each component is actionable and lends itself to fulfilling a strategic HR leader role.
