Being a Curious Leader Can Transform Your Business to Achieve Extraordinary Results 

Today’s show is another in a series of bonus episodes each featuring one of the incredible talks given by my participants in The Big Talk Academy as a part of our Virtual Showcase. This showcase is the culmination of their hard work as they cross the finish line to become certified speakers. 


These episodes give you a peek behind the scenes to witness the amazing Big Talks presented and also give you exclusive access to my live feedback and the direction I give to each speaker immediately following their performances.


This week’s episode features Dr. Debra Clary and her talk, “Curiosity - The Great Elixir To Great Leadership.”


Debra is a social scientist with three decades of executive experience with Fortune 100 Companies. She is an author, speaker, stand-up comedian, and an award-winning film producer. She holds a doctorate from George Washington University and is the recipient of the Ralph Stone Leadership Award for exemplary leadership.


In her big talk, she explores:

  • How asking questions and being curious can help us rediscover how valuable we are
  • Why The Great Resignation should be called The Great Awakening
  • The reason being a curious leader is so crucial
  • Why we’re taught to be incurious and the 3 reasons we often stay that way
