How can leaders best encourage curiosity in their teams? It's an
important question to consider because when your team is naturally more
curious they dig deeper into problems and persist through challenges.
Teams that are more curious deliver better results.
It's the foundation of all learning and innovation, and if
you want your team to be more creative and productive, then you need to start
fostering a culture of curiosity.
Unfortunately, teams too often get lost in "getting things done" and forget to ask important questions!
In my interview with Cathy Wolfe, President and Chief
Executive Officer of the Global Growth Markets (GGM) at Wolters Kluwer, you'll
discover three strategies to do that just that.
She leads the team by creating a culture of curiosity and
specifically growing their company in China, India, and Brazil… the three most
populous countries in the world.
Wolters Kluwer is a global leader in
information services and solutions for professionals in the health, tax and
accounting, risk and compliance, finance and legal sectors.
They serve customers in over 180 countries, maintains operations in over 40 countries and employs 18,600 people worldwide.
Cathy has held key leadership positions in the U.S. and the U.K., with a track record of delivering strong results and innovation, working across multiple segments of the company’s global portfolio including Health (learning, research & practice, clinical software); Tax (practice management, audit solutions); Legal and Finance (practice management, commercial credit information).
