It pays to be curious. The role that curiosity plays in wellness and well-being, emotional intelligence, and the benefits it offers to leaders are vastly underrated.

Todd Kashdan literally wrote the book on curiosity. He is a professor of psychology at George Mason University and he founded George Mason’s Well-Being Lab. Winner of the 2013 Distinguished Early Career Researcher Award by the American Psychological Association, his work has been featured in media outlets throughout the world. He’s the author of five books, including “Curious? Discover the Missing Ingredient to a Fulfilling Life.”

We talk about his definition of curiosity, the connection between it and wellness, how curiosity can help us find a little more purpose and meaning in our lives, and how finance and accounting pros can foster a greater sense of curiosity in their work.
