The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled” – Plutarch
Curiosity draws our attention to the things in life that interest us. And while this seems like a simple enough premise, research now shows that curiosity is a deeper, more complex phenomenon that plays a critical role in the pursuit of a meaningful (and healthy) life.
We all started out with curiosity – that’s how we learned to walk and talk, it’s how we discovered that ice-cream is delicious (and that dirt is not so delicious) - but somewhere along the way, our naturally curious natures became tamed, daily routine rendered things mundane, tedious, and our curiosity about what ‘might be’ became ‘resistance to change’. In this dynamic and interactive 90 minute session you’ll explore the nature (and science) of curiosity, and how becoming ‘consciously curious’ through tried and proven strategies can help alleviate worry and anxiety, allow you to find pleasure in the mundane, and become a more agile thinker and effective problem solver.
- Understand how change forces a response and Curiosity is about being on the front foot
- Learn how to cultivate curiosity in yourself and your teams
- Cultivate tangible tools to build your ‘conscious curiosity’
- Understand how Curiosity connects to Emotional Agility
