Tip 201 - Curiosity

As leaders, we much be willing to go beyond the familiar and be more curious in our daily lives. When we are more curious about people and the world around us, we can:

  • build deeper relationships

  • grow by learning, unlearning, and relearning

  • find out how we belong

  • find a deeper sense of meaning

As a foundational skill of curiosity, psychologist Carl Rogers suggests that empathy, “seeing the world through the eyes of the other, not seeing your world reflected in their eyes,” provides an understanding to another’s perspective, feelings, and motivations. In other words, you have to be curious about that person. Practicing curiosity and empathy together, may help avoid the pain of being hurt and hurting others, as well as impact levels of retention, engagement, productivity, and resilience.
