S3 E8 Tasha Ten Spotlight: Stefaan van Hooydonk - Launching Your Curiosity Mindset
Show Notes Chapter Markers

On episode 8 of Season 3  Arthi is joined by Stefaan van Hooydonk, one of the newer members of the Tasha Ten and founder of the Global Curiosity Institute, based in Belgium, talking about launching your curiosity mindset.

Stefaan gives us insight into his family and his world travels which include living in China, Finland, Saudi Arabia, UK and Holland, as well as the different episodes of his career, from investment consultant to now researching curiosity in companies and working with leaders. He defines curiosity for us, and thereafter explains the various dimensions of curiosity: world, others, and self.

Stefaan shares that although people start off curious they quickly become comfortable and stop probing or being inquisitive. For him, working on a new project ensures he is always out of his comfort zone.

You will have to listen in to find out more about Stefaan’s key advice, outlined as: Measure, Awareness and Intentionality (M-A-I).

Some wise words from Stefaan:

●        “curiosity isn't one single thing”

●        “curiosity needs a good environment”

●        “is my rate of learning greater than the rate of change around me?

 Listen to the full episode for so much more insights and ideas offered by my wonderful guest.
