Optimistic Leadership: Activating Curiosity in Challenging Times
When we activate curiosity, we are more willing to take risks, experiment, and try things out. A curious and open mind invites learning. When adults adopt curiosity, they invite children to join them in discovery and exploration. In challenging times, it can seem even harder-- if not impossible. In this webinar, we explore what it means to activate curiosity for oneself, with others, and in a group, and how to think about it as a daily practice. Featuring Judy Jablon, Nichole Parks, Laura Ensler
