“You have to be genuinely curious about people. You can’t presuppose. We all do it — but you have to be able to suspend it. And that’s a habit, that’s a practice, we can all do.” ~ Karen Coltrane
Some weeks ago, I received an email from the Leadership Center for Excellence, promoting a newly launching initiative, the “DMV Diversity & Inclusion Institute.” Nowhere in the text did the word curiosity appear – but, to me, it was clearly in the subtext, so I invited LCE’s president and CEO Karen Coltrane to join me in conversation.
