For this month's post, I'm sharing an article I wrote recently for Charity Village on leading with curiosity in our advocacy.
“Curiosity is the pre-requisite to change,” writes journalist and author Amanda Ripley. Coming to a conversation ready to listen and to hear the perspectives of others while holding our assumptions loosely is a proven way to have positive conversations that generate more creative outcomes and leave all parties feeling heard and respected. And while it isn’t always my first instinct in my advocacy work, when I lead with curiosity, I’m consistently pleased with both the outcomes and the process of how we got there.
The benefits of staying curious have come up in my reading a lot lately, so I’m sharing my three favourite reasons here. Read Three Reasons to Lead with Curiosity in Our Advocacy on CharityVillage.com
