Author Claire Laughlin has hit the nail on the head -- curiosity will help you more in business than telling people what to do.


Sure, we all need to be directive at times. But most of the time -- particularly as we move from managing to leading -- it is less about being directive and more about sparking conversations.


In other words, as leaders we need to master asking for, listening to, and creating meaning from the stories of others. From there we can influence others by sharing stories in return.


Learning how to ask for, and listen to stories is critical. And this article helps us understand the role curiosity plays in this dynamic -- how to remain curious as a leader so the critical information we need is not blocked from us.


And how to support the curiosity in others so creativity, along with ideas/solutions/innovations, can flourish.


Go read the article. There is great wisdom here.
