The Curiosophy College

 

Convince, debate and discuss. In our relentless pursuit of knowledge, we often overlook a subtle yet crucial attribute in our collective agreement: our inquisitive nature. But what does this innate curiosity within us entail? And why is it imperative that we rediscover and harness this inquisitive talent in both our personal lives and organizations? As all of us think so hard we have to know better, we often overlook a subtle yet crucial attribute in our collective agreement: our inquisitive nature. But what does that inquisitive in us actually consist of? And why is it imperative that we rediscover and harness this inquisitive talent in both our personal lives and organizations? In The Curiosophy College, Suzanne Leclaire MA – cultural scientist, supervisor of directors and founder of The Curiosophy Collective – curiously takes your team or audience into the practice of inquiry-based living and leadership.

 

The college consists of two variations:

In an inspiring, interactive session, Suzanne guides participants through the power of the curious attitude for both the present and the future. Through stimulating exercises, the room is surprised and confronted with unconsciously obstructive patterns in daily thought and action. Collectively, we establish a skillset foundation to overcome these barriers. Those who refrain from asking questions risk being overlooked.

Following a participatory warm-up session (refer to the description next to this), participants embark on a live inquiry into a question that resonates within the room. Under Suzanne’s guidance, attendees navigate a structured, self-generated inquiry in multiple stages. Through openly expressing their curiosity, participants assist each other in navigating assumptions and convictions.

Suzanne (49) is a cultural scientist, executive coach, speaker, and facilitator specializing in sustainable transitions. In 2013, she transitioned from her role as a senior manager and director in the cultural sector, where she guided numerous organizations through impactful changes within complex dynamics.

Over the past decade, Suzanne has been engaged in ‘living research,’ exploring the mechanisms that often hinder humans from acting on their desires for change. This research is embedded in the various assignments she has undertaken, as well as in the ‘Cabinets of Curiosophy’— curious encounters she has been orchestrating both domestically and internationally since 2015. The insights, structures, and skills cultivated through these experiences, in collaboration with others, form the foundation of what she terms Curiosophy.

In 2020, Suzanne established The Curiosophy Collective and introduced the widely acclaimed podcast, Ask it Forward. Together with leaders and impact makers from diverse fields, united by a common question, she continues to explore and navigate the complexities of meaningful change.
