Agreed - I think it has great potential for work in “volatile” areas eg. rapidly evolving or experimental value streams. If you try it out (think we will in my teams), be great to hear how you go.

Are we surprised that a significant role in the system is more interested in minimizing the perceived costs and risks to that system?

They might stay and turn into your next generation of leadership, they might create a start-up funded by your existing company that is wildly successful, they might help you recruit & grow replacements for when they leave. But I think you know that & your call-outs are right.

Also, for a second, imagine the positive PR you'd get from having folks you nurture move on to pursue a new venture or join another company or speak at conferences or talk to other workers outside the company. Huge talent magnet right there and much business benefit to boot.

I see it slightly differently. If they don't encourage & support curiosity, they prevent pursuit of individual interests to be sure but also kill all desire to learn & develop which in turn loses staff & dismantles innovation. At its essence, it says "we don't trust our folks".

“In a recent survey I conducted of 520 chief learning officers & chief talent development officers, I found that they often shy away from encouraging curiosity because they believe the company would be harder to manage if people were allowed to explore their own interests" - WTF?

Anyone that champions cost reduction should be asked to explain how they are reinvesting the proceeds in something beneficial to customers. If they can't do that, it's likely an attempt at constructing fake profit which will disappear rapidly along with their business.
