Are You Curious?
I’m always confused when I meet folks who lack curiosity and say they want to do well in business.
A growing business needs piles of curiosity to challenge the status quo, to uncover the useless assumptions. Without curiosity a business is a bunch of followers with no leaders, no driving energy from within.
Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it pushes a business to grow.
Don’t just show and tell … ask.
How Curiosity Builds Business
With a few curious questions we can
- create a bond with another person or an entire audience.

- focus a discussion.
- spark other questions
- incite innovative things
- learn … or teach
- signal our confidence, integrity, and trust.
That’s seven ways that curiosity builds business.
Genuine curiosity attracts.
