Great leaders often have a hard-to-pin-down quality: curiosity. In leading others, it is far easier to talk than to ask and listen. Yet, we don’t learn much when we do all the talking. Leading with curiosity fuels more powerful questions, which leads to relationship, innovation, and transformation.
Curiosity leads us to new thoughts and perspectives. Curiosity helps us break away from status quo by asking why things are the way they are and not some other way. Curiosity looks for what it does not know rather than confirm what it thinks it knows.
