As organizations struggle to improve motivation, engagement, and innovation, a ground-breaking book provides a potential solution that has caught the attention of top executives. “Cracking the Curiosity Code,” the latest book by Dr. Diane Hamilton, which includes a forward written by billionaire former Chairman and CEO of DocuSign, Keith Krach, has been lauded by distinguished business leaders including Steve Forbes, Ken Fisher, and many others. Additionally, Hamilton, the founder of Arizona-based Tonerra, recently announced that Dion Graham would voice the audio version of the book. Graham, the voice behind the television series “The First 48,” is one of the most decorated audiobook narrators of a generation.
“Cracking the Curiosity Code,” due to be published on January 28, 2019, could foreseeably launch the next movement to enhance human performance. Curiosity in the new millennium is what emotional intelligence was shown to be in the 1980s and 90s, a critical and direct link to improving motivation and communication-based issues that challenge organizations.
“Among its virtues, Dr. Diane Hamilton’s well-researched, highly useful and very timely book, ‘Cracking the Curiosity Code,’ gives critical advice for how to overcome the factors that hold individuals and organizations back from achieving their full potential,” said Steve Forbes, chairman and editor in chief of Forbes Media.
In simple terms, the company that can stimulate its workers’ curiosity, can enhance employee engagement, emotional intelligence, innovation, productivity, and the many other by-products that come with that intrinsic, but under-utilized attribute. By developing curiosity and the ability to communicate without fear of repercussions, second-guessing or judgmental responses, employees can be better aligned and emotionally committed to their jobs, which in turn, can lead to improved productivity.
In addition to the book, Hamilton created the Curiosity Code Index (CCI), which determines the factors that impact curiosity. Hamilton spent years of research to validate this 36-question assessment. Leadership consultants and HR professionals can become certified to administer the CCI. Individuals and organizations can access the book, assessment, and other materials at http://curiositycode.com.
“Diane Hamilton gives you everything you need to know on curiosity, all wrapped in a book that surely will make you a better business manager or, for that matter, parent,” said Ken Fisher, executive chairman, Fisher Investments, and New York Times bestselling author. “‘Cracking the Curiosity Code’ is a crackerjack book loaded with prizes.”
