The more curious you are, the more flow you will experience.

This article is tailored towards all leaders, whether you’re in a professional setting or elsewhere. We’re all leaders of our own lives, making choices that shape our journey.

The challenge of leadership

Leadership isn’t just guiding a team or running a business. It’s about dealing with constant change and challenges. What do you do when you feel stuck? When each decision feels heavier than the last and you’re doing the same tasks over and over? You’re facing a lack of flow, a gap between you as a unique leader and how you dare to tackle your leadership role.

Your way out of being stuck

Ever wonder how some leaders always seem to know what to do, solving problems and inspiring their teams easily? I believe the secret is curiosity. When you ask questions, look for solutions, and stay open-minded, you unlock a never-ending cycle of energy, creativity, and flow.

Courage effort vs. flow

This graph shows the relationship between ‘courage effort’ against ‘flow experienced’.

On the left, the initial steps of diving into curiosity can feel daunting. It’s like the first day at the gym; you’re working muscles you didn’t even know you had. There’s a tension as you wonder: Can I really do this?.

But then something happens. As you keep pushing, as you keep asking questions and stepping beyond your comfort zone, the ‘courage effort’ starts to drop. It’s not because the challenges get easier, but because you get better at tackling them. Your ‘curiosity muscles’ become more toned, more resilient. You start realising: Hey, not only did I survive this, but I’ve learned and grown from it.

What the graph reveals is transformative: The courage effort it takes to be curiously courageous diminishes, while the flow you experience soars. You find yourself in a zone where you’re not just surviving; you’re thriving. It becomes less about pushing yourself hard and more about being in a rhythm that feels effortlessly right. Your leadership role starts to feel like a well-conducted orchestra, where every move you make contributes to a harmonious outcome.

The ripple effect

When one person operates in a state of flow, it sets the tone for the whole team, fostering an agile, efficient, and curiosity-driven work environment and culture. When a leader is in the flow, the team feels it. Milestones get reached with greater ease, creativity blossoms, and the team members have space to flourish. A curious leader sets the tone for a team that’s in the flow.

Keep growing

Being curious isn’t a one-time thing; it’s a constant journey. You’re not just solving today’s challenges; you’re preparing yourself and your team for whatever comes next. It’s this proactive, ever-curious mindset that equips us to navigate the uncertain roads ahead with confidence and grace.
