Every person is born with a healthy dose of curiosity. Some people can maintain this level through adulthood, many however see its original strength diminish over time. Curiosity is like a muscle. With intentional focus we can grow our curiosity and capacity to rise above ourselves as individuals and professionals. Research has shown that curious professionals make more money and progress faster through their career, are happier in life and are better at maintaining relationships. They also learn faster, are more open to change and benefit from a deeper self-awareness. In this interactive session we will explore what we know about curiosity, why it is important in our professional life and we will reflect on strategies to get better at it.

Leqture Sessions always last exactly 60 minutes.
No. Actually, our philosophy is 'the more the merrier'! You can invite your entire workforce, their families, your clients, suppliers, and/or any other stakeholders.
Your account manager will take care of all your questions and special requests. But you can also talk to one of our curators if you need guidance in picking the best sessions for your audience.
90% of our sessions are recorded and the video edit will be shared after the session. The edit can be used on your intranet but cannot be distributed on the internet. We will of course always inform you if a speaker prefers not to be recorded.
Leqture is independent. We work with all the major meeting platforms like Teams, Zoom, Webex and Google Meet. Should your company want us to broadcast on yet another platform, please reach out to us and we will have a look at the possibilities!
YES! Definitely! The unique thing about Leqture is that our sessions are live. That's how we can truly facilitate interaction between employees. We use breakout rooms, whiteboards, chat, live polling, surveys and every other interaction feature.
Of course. You decide who is welcoming the speaker. Our host will introduce the speaker but that can just as well be done by your own people. We will prepare them in terms of tech and logistics.
