A “learning organization” is characterized by the value it places on curiosity. Learning organizations pursue an abundance mindset looking at problems as opportunities. In this way their curiosity fosters experimentation, vision, a commitment to mission and even a natural sense of optimism and self-confidence. Other types of organizations may adopt a scarcity mindset, emphasizing command and control, restrictive problem solving, and avoidance of perceived risk. Curiosity goes untapped.
Hear how one simulation organization put curiosity first and grew to have an international presence in improving patient outcomes. In this podcast our guests Dr. Vijayanand Jamalpuri and Dr. Vinay Nadkarni introduce, PediSTAR, India’s renowned Pediatric Simulation Training and Research Society. Both doctors share how PediSTAR started out using simulation primarily for research. They had no idea that PediSTAR would soon grow from a small organization motivated by a sense of curiosity to become now a world leader in bringing simulation to others with remarkable life-saving results.
