It is the best predictor of leadership competencies. It boosts physical energy. It contributes to mental wellbeing. And it leads to deeper engagement, superior performance and more meaningful work.
If there is a magic bullet for thriving at work, it is curiosity.
And yet, curiosity is often stifled at work. In fact, a study published in Harvard Business review found that 60% of respondents encountered barriers to curiosity at work. Thankfully, curiosity is a philosophical skill that can be re-awakened.
In this highly-practical, curiosity workshop from Philosophy at Work, we will explore curiosity and learn how to make the most of it in everyday work.
“The unexamined life is not worth living.”
Participants will leave this curiosity workshop with:
- An understanding of the five dimensions of curiosity and how they relate to day-to-day work;
- Techniques for staying curious when busy and under pressure;
- Our methodology for asking high-quality questions that draw out clients, clarify complex briefs, and uncover novel solutions; and
- Tips for encouraging curiosity in others and, ultimately, creating a culture of curiosity.
“It was refreshing to have a philosopher speak alongside creative practitioners. [We gained] useful insight in to how we may consider the value of questions as well as practical advice on how we might pose better questions in our work.”
