Breakthrough discoveries and new inventions have something in common; they are the result of curiosity. The impulse to seek new information and experiences and explore new possibilities is an essential human attribute.

Curiosity is critical to a company's performance. That’s because cultivating it at all levels helps leaders and their employees adapt to uncertain market conditions and external pressures. When our curiosity is triggered, we think more deeply and rationally about decisions and come up with more creative solutions.

Also, curiosity allows leaders to gain more respect from their followers and inspires employees to develop more-trusting and more-collaborative relationships with colleagues.
