“All of us, but especially those whose profession is to help others, can benefit from training ourselves in this skill; we must practice in order to do it well. First and foremost, if we haven’t listened deeply to ourselves, we can’t listen deeply to others.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

Q: What voices within me are asking to be listened to?

How Might I Listen More Deeply to Myself?

Tom’s Reflections on These Questions

As a leader you may find that you are being pulled in all sorts of directions. You are likely constantly listening to others – their concerns and complaints – but are you creating the space to listen more deeply to yourself?

  • What voices (parts of you) are clamouring to be heard?
  • What conversations are they asking you to have?
  • What voices crowd them out?

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.
