“Curiosity Conversations” is a seminar designed to create better outcomes for the employee experience to increase innovation, employee engagement & retention, and overall productivity through increasing the amount of curiosity in your culture.

The ability to have a solid employee experience is based on communication that can be enhanced with curiosity. Company cultures and businesses are changing rapidly, and the culture shift can easily lead to fear and miscommunication that reduce engagement, retention, and productivity. Curious people can have uncomfortable conversations that are assertive and not aggressive, anxious, or argumentative.

Curiosity Conversations was developed by Diplomat Books, a certified Women Business Enterprise (WBE) in New York State.

People that are curious are:
• Less fearful, more open, and happier
• More inquisitive, more resourceful, and more collaborative
• More in their workplace
• More innovative

Curious people are MORE PRODUCTIVE.
