Does curiosity matter?

Chris Nichols believes that curiosity is as close to a super-power as any organisation or leader is likely to attain.

But what is curiosity really? Can organisations really develop it, or is it always an individual quality?

This conversation between Michael and Chris will draw on three decades of stories of organisational success and failure to explore how curiosity is nurtured and how it is destroyed.

Chris will share stories from his experience inside Enron. We’ll hear how a CEO in FinTech alienated his middle-managers; how one university made radical curiosity a shared value; and how a global investor destroyed a takeover through closing down questions.
Examining the dance of power with curiosity, we’ll explore how the relationship between the two can support, or impede, the flourishing of individuals, organisations and the living world.

Join us for what promises to be a powerful and provocative conversation, full of practical insights and with plenty of space to pose questions and to join the discussion and add your story.


We speak at conferences and other gatherings covering themes around Mindful Leadership and many more.
