The Art & Science of Curiosity – How to ignite curiosity to build innovative, collaborative teams

The engine of creativity, and foundation of life-long learning, and the bringer of pleasure and reward, curiosity is a future proof personal and interpersonal development skill.

We were all so curious as children, asking, testing, playing, experimenting - it is part of a clever biological trick to help us learn. But curiosity can serve a great purpose in our adult lives and produce the same levels of intrinsic reward. Developing a curious disposition is both an art and a science, and can help us establish life long learning habits, unleash our creativity, and build collaborative and innovative teams. 

We were all so curious as children, asking, testing, playing, experimenting. At what stage did we stop being curious, and what effects has that had on our ability to grow personally and professionally? Curiosity serves a great purpose in our lives, and helps us establish life-long learning habits, greater self-awareness, and brings about achievements in work and at home.
