Session Overview

The shadow a manager casts on the team is one of the biggest drivers for productivity, engagement and the feeling of well-being of the team. Those managers who do this well, uplift the team. Those who don’t, stifle it. The key to effective task management and people leadership is curiosity. Curious leaders are good at operationalizing the present as well as securing the future. They create the psychological safety for the team to thrive. Curious leaders represent a high level of cognitive, empathic, and self-reflective curiosity. They are curious about the world around them, the people they work with and about their own internal conscious and unconscious drivers. They go out of their way to engage with their team, also in times of crisis. They stretch their teams to excel in the present and to embrace the future. They are Intentionally curious. In this interactive session we explore what we know about curiosity and why it is important for leaders, teams, and organizations.

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.
