When you make wonder a cultural norm, you empower vibrancy, connection, and adaptability.
Encourage your team to ask WONDER-generating questions to break down social and organizational barriers, build healthy relationships, and work through problems effectively. Ask, “What else could be true?” before implementing knee-jerk reactions to problems. Hire and reward curiosity. Encouraging WONDER at work benefits your organization and everyone it touches.
WONDER is a key dimension in the Be Well Lead Well Pulse® assessment, drawing together three out of the assessment’s 19 psychometrics of wellbeing leadership:
- Appreciation & Awe: The extent to which you experience a sense of beauty, curiosity, and enchantment in your daily life.
- Seeking New Perspectives: The extent to which you don’t simply tolerate views that are different from your own, but rather, actively look for opportunities to expand your viewpoints and beliefs.
- Learning & Growing: The extent to which you use the constant changes and “ups and downs” of life to evolve as a human being.
