Shallow Vs. Depth

As the captain of the ship, it’s vital to engage in the What If game with your crew. Dive into the “tell me more” exploratory mindset and not shy away from the whys and hows that lead to deep conversations. This not only shows your readiness to challenge the status quo and explore fresh horizons but, most importantly, shows the value you place on your teams' ideas and creativity.

Harvard Business Review just dropped a golden nugget in their new article about 4 Phrases That Build a Culture of Curiosity. They explore the two sides of curiosity by leaders:

Shallow Curiosity

Deep Curiosity

Shallow curiosity is like sailing on the surface. Skimming only the waves of data and facts, without diving into the depths of the ocean. It’s focused on staying afloat, never exploring the unknown.

Deep curiosity is all about taking the plunge into the uncharted waters of emotions, thoughts and experiences. It’s what strengthens the bonds that unite your team.

The more time you dedicate to navigating with deep curiosity, the more likely you are to transform your ship’s culture into one that not only embraces curiosity but treasures it as an indispensable tool.
