How to Build Curiosity: The Key to Improving Engagement, Innovation and Productivity

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. Once organizations recognize and overcame what holds people back from being curious, they can develop training and development plans to unleash it.
