Good morning Andy and all!
Amy Loyd, JFF (she/her)

Hi everyone - it’s an unseasonably (unreasonably) warm day here in Albuquerque. I’m interested in how we as leaders make and hold space for curiosity in the midst of urgency, fast-paced work, and a culture that prioritizes clarity and decisiveness?

cognitive load
Marga Biller - LILA
50:22
not linear
Ben Meador - Steelcase
50:22
No grid
donna flynn, steelcase
50:24
no patterning for your brain to clue into
Nagler, Molly {PEP}
50:29
no pattern
Joe Crowley - BlackRock
50:29
no pattern
Abigail Stonerock
50:30
fonts...ugh
Kathy Clemons (she/hers) - BlackRock
50:32
I naturally only saw certain shapes/colors
Amy Loyd, JFF (she/her)
50:32
Different fonts, colors
Michele Rigolizzo
50:32
Had to scan every time. Different sizes/shapes
Andy Trainor-Walmart
50:33
they are randomly placed and not the same pattern
Sarah Nehrling
50:39
Distracted by larger, brighter numbers
Amanda LILA
50:41
stress from being timed
Teresa Roche City of Fort Collins
50:41
I read left to right and so I needed to suspend certainty and no letter looked the same....
Anita Krishnan - LILA
50:42
The different font, your brain doesn’t know what it’s looking for
Eric Vandersluis
50:45
focus or lack of ...
Gabe Sopocy (Publicis Sapient)
50:46
My visual perception and pattern-spotting skills are inferior to my verbal capabilities
Susan Sweeney--EnPro
50:47
Had to reframe what each number could look like
Jim Martin US Army
50:47
Our natural habit is to scan from left to right along a line…can’t do that here.
Jim Martin US Army
51:54
You could probably score higher scanning right to left…
Amy Loyd, JFF (she/her)
52:10
FASCINATING that we didn’t note that!
Kyle | JFF
54:49
group think?
Kyle | JFF
01:01:34
is this true within org as well - as in, unproductively curious, vis-a-vis role/charge?
Spencer Harrison - INSEAD
01:03:29
What would my biggest competitor do if they were in position?
Gabe Sopocy (Publicis Sapient)
01:05:10
What would my biggest competitor do if they were my collaborator?
Ben Meador - Steelcase
01:05:21
what would a start up do in my position?
Kathy Clemons (she/hers) - BlackRock
01:05:22
Who is a competitor I'm not aware of?
Teresa Roche City of Fort Collins
01:05:25
What position do we want to be in?
Jim Martin US Army
01:05:29
How does my competitor view our work?
Kate McGuire Deloitte
01:05:30
What do I want to try, whether or not there's precedent?
Susan Sweeney--EnPro
01:05:31
What strategic plan is my competitor implementing?
Anita Krishnan - LILA
01:05:32
What makes them my biggest competitor?
Michele Rigolizzo
01:05:33
What am I doing that is giving an advantage to my competitors?
Nina Tompkin LILA
01:05:35
How did we get to this position?
donna flynn, steelcase
01:05:39
What are the forces of change we are both facing, and how are we responding differently?
Marga Biller - LILA
01:05:45
What is it about their product that I really like
Dennis Reber St Jude Children's Research Hospital
01:05:45
Why do we care?
Sarah Nehrling
01:05:47
What might my competitor know that I don't?
Joe Crowley - BlackRock
01:05:48
What I have multiple big competitors ?
Steve Smith
01:05:53
who do we see as our biggest competitors
Nagler, Molly {PEP}
01:05:59
what could we achieve if we worked together?
Graham Johnston - Deloitte
01:06:02
What does my competitor think of me?
Kate McGuire Deloitte
01:08:56
I'm curious how you defined productive vs. unproductive, especially knowing innovation can come from connecting seemingly "irrelevant" things?
Gabe Sopocy (Publicis Sapient)
01:09:32
I’m wondering about the specific behaviors and signs that someone is exhibiting curiosity
Anita Krishnan - LILA
01:09:52
@Kate +1
Gabe Sopocy (Publicis Sapient)
01:10:23
@Kate +1, too
Joe Crowley - BlackRock
01:10:26
I am wondering how we teach a manager to teach their team to employ productive curiosity
Jim Martin US Army
01:11:00
Is curiosity and pattern building affected by culture?
Nagler, Molly {PEP}
01:11:03
maybe unproductive vs productive is about intention. if you are open to applying the new information gleaned from your curiousity to your job, then it is productive.
Nagler, Molly {PEP}
01:11:29
or is it that all curiousity is unproductive until proven productive?
Kathy Clemons (she/hers) - BlackRock
01:11:53
we've talked about some of our orgs valuing the 'hero' with the answers - interested to think about how we make the curious the 'hero' because of how it unlocks potential in the team/org
Graham Johnston - Deloitte
01:12:06
Re: that decline in curiosity with age, at Deloitte we've recognized that we need to overcome the stigma that curiosity and asking questions is a weakness.
Jim Martin US Army
01:12:21
One of keys to good questioning is good listening.

Nagler, Molly {PEP}
01:17:36
thank you Amanda!
Gabe Sopocy (Publicis Sapient)
01:17:42
I am imagining some curiosity behaviors that are kind of covertly productive, but might look unproductive. Asking oblique questions, incorporating play into work, tangential lines of thinking that tie back into the larger purpose.
Ben Meador - Steelcase
01:19:52
Is there a limit to productive curiosity, or is more always better?
Ben Meador - Steelcase
01:21:44
If product growth curves are predictable (typewriter example), is there a better or worse time for curiosity?
Kyle | JFF
01:27:58
@Ben - so a strategic curiosity coupled with a productive curiosity?
Nagler, Molly {PEP}
01:28:57
like the idea of strategic curiosity, Gabe
Nagler, Molly {PEP}
01:29:09
and Kyle
Graham Johnston - Deloitte
01:30:33
One perspective...at Deloitte we measure/diagnose curiosity not by how curious someone is (proficiency) but rather how they are curious (where, how, and when do they employ it).
Nagler, Molly {PEP}
01:31:12
one person's curiosity is another's annoying digression
Kyle | JFF
01:31:25
LOL.
Ben Meador - Steelcase
01:31:27
How do you cultivate shared curiosity among an ad hoc group working on a systems problem?
Gabe Sopocy (Publicis Sapient)
01:32:51
+1 Ben shared curiosity, that’s an interesting thought. We’ve been talking about it largely as a personal mindset. How does it transform from a personal to a cultural mindset?
Graham Johnston - Deloitte
01:33:53
Also, how should the definition of success (and what we measure) extend beyond curiosity and more towards what people can do better by using it.
donna flynn, steelcase
01:35:00
collective curiosity as an integral element of collective creativity
Joe Crowley - BlackRock
01:36:10
really great convo - thank you
Steve Smith
01:36:17
Apologies I have another call I must drop for. Take care everyone!!!
