Imagine you all meet up in 3 years’ time to celebrate the ongoing impact of your work together in terms of personal growth, professional development and contribution to your respective organisations or communities. Ask yourself:

Q: What is different now?

Q: What sort of leader am I now?

Q: What is my vision now?

Note: Please answer these questions in the present tense to bring your future accomplishments into sharper focus.

Let's Dream: Where Might This Lead?

Tom’s Reflections on These Questions

The power of visualisation is that it creates memories of what you have accomplished. Just think about that! For our brains, memories are inevitably in the past so at some level it feels like whatever we remember has already come to pass.

Visualising yourself having completed this programme (or indeed anything else) and then talking about it in the present or past tenses means you already have that sense of accomplishment.

You also get to envision the changes you have brought about – you get to meet this new person you have become. These memories all create anchors to which you can return as you move forward on your journey.

Programme Overview

The Curious Leaders programme is designed to foster a deep sense of curiosity about who you are as a person and as a leader. It challenges you to reflect on what you can do each day to become a more effective leader. The premise is that before we can truly lead others, we first need to lead ourselves.

It thus ultimately starts with self-leadership. This is about building a practice of reflection and action whereby we become increasingly curious about how our thinking is impacting our actions. This is the first step in building a world in which curiosity shapes leadership.

In this world, leaders aren’t boxed in by traditional thinking or established playbooks. They are open to fresh ideas and diverse perspectives, fostering a culture of exploration and learning. In truth, nurturing curiosity in leadership is essential if we are to address the key challenges of the 21st century.
