What Are You Measuring?

Posted by Bill Crose on September 13, 2019 at 11:33am 1 Comment

A lifetime ago, my training department colleagues and I were satisfied with training data. We cranked out the requested ILT programs plus the "flavor of the year" content, we kept a busy training schedule, and made sure the coffee was always the right temperature. When accused of not delivering effective training because the learners didn't perform as they were trained, we took refuge in our management support role and not ultimately responsible or accountable for LEARNING or productivity.…

This quote from the article caught my attention:

"And in the classroom or workplace, learning what might be considered boring material could be enhanced if teachers or managers are able to harness the power of students' and workers' curiosity about something they are naturally motivated to learn."

Here is my challenge I will be talking about on Friday: Where are the limits of curiosity? Where does it begin and where does it end? 

Alex, a few years ago I read a book titled "Risky is the New Safe." The author suggested that "curiosity" be accompanied by "discipline." I have interpreted "discipline" to be equivalent to a "framework that assures objectivity." For example - Engage in open curiosity sessions with others- once a month for 75 Minutes.


Thank you for the book recommendation Paul. I will definitely have a look at it. It is very interesting to note your perspective on this and shows that curiosity is a function of open-mindedness. Perhaps what I meant by curiosity limits and its implied discipline is: " should people be focused on being disciplined wih their curiosity within their own field or should they be undisciplined with respects to their field of work (or study) and seek to be curious about other subjects? 

Another terrific question Alex. Yes - much is to be gained by studying another industry and discovering new ways of solving problems within your own industry. "Guild resistance" is a challenge that we must all deal with as it may diminish "curiosity" within the guild.

And you touch upon where I wish to go with curiosity. Where does someone balance between knowing your industry/field deeply and fighting guild resistance? Where do you stop being a specialist or generalist and is there a balance to be struck between both? 

Hi, we should have a great session with our participants, panelists, remarkable speaker, and other.  This is Henry, Moderator.

Just wanted to share a definition from, Curiosity.  1.the desire to learn or know about anything, inquisitiveness.  2. a curious, rare or novel thing  3.a strong, curious, or interest quality.

Synonyms:  concern, inquiring mind, investigation, meddling, nosiness, prying, snooping.

Well, I was surprised by some of the synonyms.

See ya later.

Thanks Henry - perhaps "curiosity killed the cat" because while it thought it was just learning - something else perceived it to be "snooping." How might we avoid the dangers of learning being considered "snooping?"

Empathy and Curiosity.  I strive to have empathy (see what others see / understand what others understand).  Until today, I have not consciously thought of the strong relationship between empathy and curiosity.  I am eager to know how others respond to this.

Hello June, Donna, Beth, Alexandre, Kerry and Hari ..

I will be the Moderator. PLEASE PLEASE.  If there is anything that I can do to support you and this segment,  please let me know.  My phone is 678 777 6960 if you wish to reach me. 

Hey Henry!

Thank you, for moderating this panel!  I am excited to be here and to add my curiosity 2 cents!  I'm curious if curiosity is synonymous with squirrel. Forget that dead cat. Just call me Alice...

Looking forward to it all y'all!
