Cultivating Curiosity Will Expand Your Brain

Featuring Ian Leslie, Author of Curious and Conflicted


Ian Leslie, the author and researcher behind the books Curious and Conflicted, joins Alan Todd for a spirited conversation on the different types of curiosity. They discuss why organizations should strive to create a culture where there’s no such thing as a silly question and everyone’s curiosity is rewarded.

Listeners will learn strategies for opening up your mind to creative thinking and the difference between shallow and deep curiosity — and why pursuing deep curiosity is worth it.
