I have been mulling with the idea of curiosity as one of the few responses one can use to regenerate attention, specifically in organisational contexts where attention is constantly under erasure. I came across this gem the other day on four reasons why curiosity is important and how to develop it. As someone who has a deep fascination in transversing disciplines, curiosity seems like one of the few beacons which has relevance in almost every area I explore. As an enabler of my own learning and also as a way to enter places which I am unfamilar with. My goal for 2009 as part of my PhD work is to try and build some kind of toolkit that may be used in organisations to regenerate attention through the mechanism of curiosity. Not sure where I am even going to begin this genealogical journey but I don't think it is going to be in the annals of management literature. I think I am going to start by sitting in a park watching children play.
