The ability to cultivate a culture of curiosity is an essential leadership skill in today’s workplace. Curiosity is the driving force behind any form of learning, creativity and innovation.
When we face increasingly complex issues in an increasingly complex world, we need fresh approaches to solving the wicked challenges we face. If leadership is about taking people into new, unknown territory; curiosity serves as a better guide than professing to already know what’s there.
Leading Curiosity is designed to help leaders at all levels harness the creative energy of their people and direct it towards worthwhile outcomes. It provides leaders with a framework and practical tools to create a culture where being openly curious is more valuable than simply rushing to answers.
Leading Curiosity can be run over two half-days or one full day in a hands-on, small group workshop format. It includes pre-work, practical application, online resources, on-the-job activities, and follow up.
