What is Curiouser? Inside our people development community newsletter.

Think, for a moment, about the last time you gathered in a group where the sole purpose was to learn from others. For many of us, those kinds of growth experiences are all too rare these days – even if our jobs are focused on leadership, learning and development. But as our roles and workplaces rapidly evolve, we need opportunities to learn from one another more than ever.


Our newsletter, Curiouser, is designed to help you do just that. It’s a resource for people leaders, coaches, mentors and behavioral scientists who are dedicated to helping those around them learn and grow through the power of trusted relationships.


Wondering where we got the name? In Lewis Carroll’s classic book Alice in Wonderland, Alice cries “Curiouser and curiouser!” as she discovers all that has changed through the rabbit hole. To us, Alice’s words remind us that staying curious about new ideas, connections and perspectives is a key to our development.


In each edition of Curiouser, you can expect us to share insights sourced directly from newsletter subscribers, as well as questions, advice, new strategies, emerging research and stories from thought leaders, researchers and practitioners.


Our vision is to create a space where you can learn about the art and science of people development* from others, and contribute your own ideas and insights along the way. In the future, we hope to grow this newsletter audience into a community where you can connect with individuals who share your passion for growth, development, learning and leadership. And most importantly, with people who share your curiosity.


Here are some of the questions on our minds these days:

  • How do you help people develop during moments of uncertainty or change?
  • How can you build a culture of coaching?
  • How can you equip managers to talk with employees about challenging subjects?


We’re especially curious to hear from you. What are your burning people development questions? What’s keeping you up at night? And what’s making you excited to start work in the morning? What are the beautiful questions that you’re pondering?


Please share your questions, comments, and ideas with us here. And if you have answers to the questions we’ve posed above, we’re all ears. We might even feature your insights in an upcoming newsletter.
