Warren Berger, in his book A More Beautiful Question, pointed out that questioning without action is philosophy (Q – A = P). My approach is thus not only to nurture a practice of curiosity but equally to inspire tangible action. It is only when we add action into the equation by truly living into these questions that we bring innovation to our lives, businesses and societies.

These free self-paced programmes apply this same question-driven philosophy to personal and professional development. They offer a structure on which you can hang your own questions. In the words of Shane Parrish – the founder of the Knowledge Project, the purpose is thus to:

“…open a space in [our minds] that allow better answers to breathe.”

Curiosity-Inspired Leadership

The late Peter Drucker rightly noted that leadership today is less about having all the answers and more about asking better questions. To fully embrace a question-led approach, we must first model it ourselves.

So, let’s start right away:

What benefits can I expect to see as a result of working through this programme?

Answer:

“If you truly embrace this work, you will foster a deep sense of curiosity about who you are as a person and as a leader and what you can do each day to become a more effective leader.”

Coaching Playground

I have the privilege of being part of an amazing community of practice that meets every two weeks with one purpose: “to support our development as coaches!

In the process, we question many aspects of how we show up in the world. The accompanying content was developed to support this process and has served as inspiration and hopefully may inspire others.

A portion of the non-coaching specific content parallels the Curious Leaders programme, because at the end of the day, no matter our roles, it all starts with how we show up!

The Bigger Questions Project revolves around a single question:

How can we get more people to truly care about the bigger questions facing humanity?

Humanity is facing a whole series of profound and even existential threats and whilst it wouldn’t be fair to say, in the words of the comedian George Carlin, “nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care” it is true to say that not enough seem to care.
