The principles

The philosophy of investigative leadership is based on three fundamental qualities by which investigative leaders differentiate themselves. Inquisitive capacity, smart sensitivity and dialogical ability. For more information, see the three Curiosophy pillars. This program aims to improve your attitude and skills with regards to these three qualities.

 

The tutors

The program is formed by five experienced professionals from The Curiosophy Collective cast. We begin the day by meeting the founder and heart of investigative leadership, Suzanne Leclaire. Afterwards we will broaden and deepen your inquisitive capacity, smart sensitivity and dialogical ability with a tour of Paul Bos, Ariane van Heijningen, Peter Rombouts and Ingrid Geerts.

From a diverse palette of perspectives, including leadership development, practical philosophy and systemic work. We work with specially designed interventions to experience investigative leadership in the here and now. We all have extensive experience in guiding executives and their teams and are familiar with the moral dilemmas, the ‘burning matters’ and the issues of responsibility that managers, directors and supervisors have to deal with. During the five days, we will organize a dialogue with one or more inspiring leaders who exhibit a most investigative leadership style. You will discover who these are along the way.

Program structure

The program consists of five days in five months, during which participants acquire the fundamental attitudes and skills of investigative leadership. During and between these days we work to deepen and strengthen your leadership. The modules take place in various, suitable locations within The Netherlands. The group consists of a maximum of ten people and will comply with the corona measures in force.

What does it lead to?

The result of the entire program will be that you know what it means to lead yourself and others with an inquisitive attitude. You will learn to focus on what is essential about the issues that cross your path and to utilize the potential thereof and that of others in a targeted manner to set a proper course for your organization. This will teach you to focus your attention where you are most effective, which will increase your impact.

In-Company?

It’s possible! We also develop leadership programs tailored to your organization. We tune our philosophy to the needs of your directorate, management or commissary. For example there may be a desire for a more connected leadership culture, or to learn to lead with a more dialogical attitude. In our design we emphasise what is sought. Locations and duration of the program vary.

Who is it for?

This program has been developed for people with a considerable amount of experience as a director, DGA, executive, supervisor or other position of (ultimate) responsibility, in which you have to deal with rapidly changing circumstances and issues of considerable complexity. We categorically look for differences between participants, both in disciplines and background. In this way we maximise the learning of the group.
