Why Curiosity is Important for Growth

Curiosity for Life and Business

Why is curiosity important for success? Where does curiosity come from? Is there such a thing as too much? 

In this episode of She Built This, my guest, Karen Kenney, and I get curious about curiosity and why curiosity is important for growth in life and business.

But first, the backstory.

We don’t make mistakes, we have happy accidents. – Bob Ross

This episode was brought to you courtesy of one of MY happy accidents. Despite my over-the-top organizational skills, I lost the recording Karen and I did the FIRST time around for the episode. So, we had to schedule a little do-over and in my unbiased opinion, this one is better than EVER and was exactly meant to be as it ended up.

Karen’s a unique, engaging, and inspiring speaker and in my opinion, always brings a perspective that’s counter to all the shoulds, due to her own level of curiosity and looking at things in a different way. 

She identifies as a super curious person, I identify as curious person, and in this episode, we’re going to talk all about how curiosity can pave the way, lead the way, and inspire your next step.

Key takeaways from the episode: 

  • How Karen Kenney got to where she is today by way of Route Curiosity 101

  • Why curiosity is important and what it can do in your life and business

  • The four types of curiosity

  • The value of curiosity in our relationships and building connection 

  • What Karen’s learning as she engages in Simone Seol’s Garbage Post Challenge

  • Why curiosity is the key to self-compassion and grace 

  • And more!
