“Curious is the opportunity to get a little bit vulnerable,” she says. “It's stepping in and asking questions so that we can learn.”

Watch the video to learn why curiosity is key in leadership.

One of the things I see with great leaders and I see with great coaches is they are consistently curious. Right? Tom Izzo, who is a client of mine forever at Michigan State, Tom is a guy that'll pick up the phone and call coaches that he competes with on a regular basis to learn and ask questions. Geno Auriemma, one of the best basketball coaches really in the world, Geno's a guy that'll pick up the phone and call folks to learn.

When see great leaders, great coaches, do that, we can sort of steal those ideas and deploy them in our own lives. To me, curious is the opportunity to get a little bit vulnerable. It's stepping in and asking questions so that we can learn. The byproduct often of curiosity is we show up better. We show up better for ourselves. We show up better for the people that we lead. We show up better, most importantly, for the people that we serve.
