Choose to be Curious #12: Curiosity & Leadership - with Scott Nycum

Chart positions

This show was 25th in the global interview chart.

Scott Nycum offers a wealth of insights on the hot topic of leadership. In a conversation both practical and inspiring, Scott explores the role of curiosity in leaders' success. "Curiosity has to be one of the tools that an effective leader needs to have, not just nice to have - it would almost be an essential component."

Join us next time when we talk with Kelly Falkner of the National Science Foundation about whether scientists and researchers are any more curious than the rest of us.

Great analogy! Open ended questions are powerful tools. Thanks for sharing your wisdom - and for listening!

Dion John Hunt

Great discussion to ponder and apply! As a Leadership/Life Coach I use these principles daily with our team and clients. I also use these at home with my wife and tween daughter. Asking open-ended questions opens doors of possibilities. "What if?" questions can either lead to dreadful or amazing possibilities. Being curious is like nail polish. It's a tool painters apply to make life more beautiful and meaningful. :) Thanks for a great segment!

What a privilege to work with Scott! I was very impressed with the depth of his thinking and insights. Thank you for listening!

Erin Blakley

This is excellent! I have had the privilege of working directly with Scott in small groups as well as watching him speak at events in front of hundreds of leaders in our company. He has a gift, both natural and practiced, for gently honing in on the heart of big problems through observant questioning and genuine curiosity.


Thanks, Erin! I continue to learn from every experience with our colleagues who bring energy and curiosity to solving tough problems for our clients every day. A privilege to support our teams.

I am glad you liked it. I thought Scott did a wonderful job of articulating some really fundamental points about the power of a curious mind on the leadership stage. Love the analogy!


Oh, how much did I enjoy interview?!! Like nail polish, this conversation evoked the intoxication that a good question can offer along with a unique beauty in its expression.
