Have you ever felt that your relationships with certain colleagues are only touching the surface? Or that the conversations you’re having with your team aren’t as in-depth as you’d like them to be? Perhaps, the decisions being discussed in meetings aren’t so effective? You’re not quite sure how to deal with certain people and even understanding their perspectives seems like a struggle. Curiosity, active listening, and asking the right questions will have an effect on you…
Sharpening your Curiosity is a seed built to focus specifically on these needs. How to better build relationships with others by actively listening to your surroundings? How to ask the right questions to ensure a deeper connection with colleagues? How to improve decision-making processes and team performance output? It all starts by having an open ear and truly listening to what’s being said, followed by a mixture of humble inquiry and open-mindedness. We help you master these skills by teaching you the art of asking good questions, listening well and hard, what to pay attention to, and how to uncover underlying meanings in conversations. We also help you uncover your personal assumptions and judgements to support you in being a better listener and inquirer.
