The Seven C’s of Creative Leadership
By Tony Vengrove
Welcome to Episode 3 of The Seven C’s of Creative Leadership! In this conversation we dive into the second C: Curiosity. Effective Creative Leaders understand that curiosity is the bedrock of fostering a creative culture. The most effective technique for inspiring curiosity is to ask questions.
Our special guest, Brand Strategist, Steve Kazanjian, shares his perspective about why
Re-framing curiosity as the quest for the truth.
Why curiosity is the pre-work of creativity.
Why it’s critical for leaders and organizations to get out of their comfort zone and how curiosity helps people accomplish this.
Steve’s warning that you “cannot be afraid to leave the building.” Why getting out of the office is so critical to getting inspired.
Curiosity is perhaps the easiest “C” to immediately incorporate into your leadership routine. It simply requires stimulating conversation via thought-provoking questions. Asking “Why?” and “Why not?” are often the only questions you need to ask to uncover those hidden nuggets of insight that can unleash your team’s creative thinking.
