Referral Program

Build a supportive community of curious colleagues by referring 3 people that I can contact about a Strategic Curiosity® coaching or consulting engagement. In return, you will receive a complimentary coaching session.

 

What do you do differently as a result of Strategic Curiosity® coaching?  

I noticed that it’s easier to detach emotionally to voice disagreements and when speaking the truth. When I see examples of what we’ve talked about, it clicks! 

What new capabilities have you acquired?  What do you do now that you didn’t do before? 

I listen more.  I pause and think about things more broadly more. If I’m presented a problem and I have the time in my office to reflect on it, then I can do it. If I’m presented a problem with a group and we’re working on it as a team, I reflect more before going into a meeting before I work with them. And I think more about the questions that I ask .

How has Strategic Curiosity® helped you grow professionally?

The nature of what I do -- I can consume a lot of details.  I think I would process them too quickly. So,...[our process] or thinking about it very specifically forces you to pay attention to details that I might have overlooked that might take some more time.  I don’t know if I missed details but I might have missed the meaning of the details

How have changes in your leadership impacted your team?

Different ideas have come from the team than what I would have proposed.   They’re thinking about it.  The staff is thinking more.  I don’t have to do as much.
