Curiosity is the driving force behind any form of learning, creativity and innovation. 

Learn how to:

  • take a new approach to tackling wicked challenges 
  • ask powerful questions that generate fresh thinking
  • uncover the biases that limit your perspective, so you can discover new possibilities
  • help your people to dial up their own curiosity
  • create a thriving culture of curiosity in your team or organisation.

In a public sector facing increasingly complex issues, we need fresh approaches to solving the wicked challenges facing New Zealand. If leadership is about taking people into new, unknown territory, curiosity serves as a better guide than professing to know what’s there. The Leadership Success Profile highlights curiosity as one of the key indicators of leadership potential, and it’s increasingly valued in senior leadership roles.

Upgrade your thinking to solve today’s problems by being openly curious rather than simply rushing to answers. LDC facilitator Digby Scott will show you how.

Increasingly, today’s challenges require leaders to be deeply curious, and create cultures of curiosity.

  • To cultivate curiosity, create a gap between what people know and what they want to know.
  • Lead from the front by role modelling curiosity in your own leadership style.
