Zander Lurie Espouses the Virtues of Curiosity in the Workplace

Survey Monkey CEO sat down with Irish Tech News to discuss his views on management and business and the importance of curiosity in a healthy work environment:

Curiosity can manifest itself in various ways. The best kind of curiosity is born out of your expertise. You know something about your industry. If you’re in our legal group, or in sales, or in our billing engineering group, and you noodling on something and you mobilize others and bring those views together and you come with a thesis or hypothesis. So that doesn’t have to be “I have a question where is the microphone?”. It really can be ‘I have a plan. I have an idea. I want to do a growth hacking or try out a new business. What have we changed our marketing plan to go XYZ?”. I don’t have to do a lot to make people curious. People at SurveyMonkey are innately curious and we try to hire really smart and empathetic people from the start. Some poeple you are not that curious and therefore not all that interesting to work with.
