New Assessment Designed for HR Professionals and Consultants to Improve Curiosity, Engagement, Innovation and Productivity
Thursday, October 11, 2018

PHOENIX, Oct. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Researcher, author and nationally syndicated radio show host Dr. Diane Hamilton has developed a new assessment to determine the things that impact curiosity, titled the Curiosity Code Index (CCI). Praised by CEOs as "the ultimate assessment to help individuals and organizations improve engagement, innovation and productivity."

The CCI is the first assessment of its kind. After years of research and through interviewing top business thought leaders, Dr. Hamilton has designed this assessment to go along with her book Cracking the Curiosity Code: The Secret to Unlocking Human Potential. Hamilton's research found the key to improving many of the factors associated with productivity, began with improving curiosity. The book and CCI explore the four factors that can inhibit curiosity including Fear, Assumptions, Technology and Innovation (FATE) and provide a plan for how to improve in these areas.

    --  Fear - To better understand how fear impacts curiosity, it is critical
        to learn how to address issues like how to deal with the perception of
        failure, embarrassment and loss of control. There could be specific
        issues like competition, pressure, rejection and expectations.
    --  Assumptions - Sometimes undetectable factors can inhibit willingness to
        explore or be curious. From the issues or topics disliked as a child, to
        the areas believed to be already sufficiently explored, the key is to
        discover the subtlety and the significance of those assumptions that
        curtailed or blocked curiosity.
    --  Technology - Siri or Alexa can answer so much that no exploration takes
        place or on the other extreme, many are overwhelmed by the onslaught of
        technology. Many individuals can be resistant to the inevitable changes
        that accompany new technologies.
    --  Environment - This includes the degree to which parents, college
        professors or all other influential people can impact, and potentially
        inhibit, curiosity. It may be culture or even a boss.

Hamilton has used her experience as a certified emotional intelligence instructor, to create a program unlike any other. The book and assessment will be available to everyone. Additionally, a CCI certification training program will be available to HR professionals and leadership consultants to provide them with the ability to administer the assessment, interpret the results and provide an Innovation Plan (I-Plan) workshop designed to improve chosen metrics including:

    --  Increased engagement
    --  Increased innovation
    --  Increase in revenue or margin
    --  Reduction in costs
    --  Increase in product or service creation
    --  Increase in market share
    --  Increased productivity
