AU FSBT SHRM Chapter Webcast

FSBT Ashford University BAHRM/MHRM Presentation August 23rd, 2019

 https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/J8JF759

 How to Build Curiosity to Improve Innovation, Engagement and Productivity

Bio:

Dr. Diane Hamilton is the Founder and CEO of Tonerra, a nationally syndicated radio host, keynote speaker, and the former MBA Program Chair at the Forbes School of Business.  She is the author of multiple books including Cracking the Curiosity Code: The Key to Unlocking Human Potential and the creator of the Curiosity Code Index® assessment.

How to Build Curiosity to Improve Innovation, Engagement and Productivity

Workplace Application:

Unleash and reward employees’ curiosity to improve engagement, innovation and productivity. 

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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Determine how four factors—Fear, Assumptions, Technology, and Environment (FATE)—have an impact on curiosity.
  • Learn strategies for overcoming the factors that hold back curiosity.
  • Discover the Curiosity Quotient (CQ) and Curiosity Code Index (CCI).

SHRM Competencies:

  • Relationship Management
  • Critical Evaluation
  • Communication

https://bridgepointeducation.zoom.us/j/728552561

Description: We can count dozens of examples every day of people acting irrationally. This irrational behavior can cause us frustration and upset. What if we lived in a world where we were free from the burden of dealing with stupidity all around us? Imagine what we’d be able to accomplish.

In this session, Eric will explain how the Principles of Human Understanding™ (a communication and collaboration methodology rooted in brain science and psychology) can help you improve every relationship in your life personally and professionally.

We will explore how an HR team, using this methodology, can be much more effective. Rather than obsess over rules to modify behavior, we will learn to look a layer deeper and try to understand the psychology behind the actions. Solutions will involve the use of storytelling, application of experience, and teaching.
