‘The world is divided into two types of people: those that know it all, and those that are still learning. If, like me, you fall into the second category, then curiosity is the behaviour that you need to adopt to start bridging that gap. This book will start you on the journey of better understanding this critical concept and how to apply it in your business.’Daryl BussellCEO, Luv-a-Duck
With this book, athlete, author, and creativity consultant, Evette Cordy, has given us a practical set of exercises comprising a “total body workout” of our curiosity muscles. Cordy quotes Shunryu Suzuki, setting the tone for a business book that is very Zen. Cordy’s writing is minimalist, well-edited, elegant and spare. She gives us the gifts, modestly, and without uff. She is offering something valuable - cultivating these six “curiosity mindsets” will undoubtedly lead to more innovation and impact in our professional and personal lives.Cate HardingCustomer Experience Guru
‘The comedian John Cleese is fond of saying that creativity is a mood. It’s not a talent or special skill and it’s not related to IQ. It’s a practice that takes time and space – “an oasis of quiet for your mind” – where you can explore and play. In many ways being curious and creative means rediscovering the state of being that comes so naturally to children. “What if we ...”, “Imagine that ...”, “Let’s pretend ...” are phrases that come so easily when we’re young, but so much harder when we’re grown up. Cultivating Curiosity is a great resource to help us nurture curiosity in ourselves and in our workplaces. I challenge you to read it, and then be a rebel, a sleuth, or a play-maker. Not only will you make an impact in your business, you might just have some fun along the way.’Kylie BishopGroup Executive People & Culture, Medibank Private Health Insurance
