The CuriosityBased Team
The teamThe CuriosityBased team is committed to helping people realize the power of curiosity to build trust, respect, and a collaborative spirit.
We practice what we teach, and the keyword is “practice” because collaboration is constantly a work in progress.
Who we areWe represent a diversity of disciplines, including history, social work, engineering, food science, and business administration, as well as cultural backgrounds, which is reflected in our native languages: Mandarin, Spanish, Burmese, Vietnamese, and English. This diversity influences our approach to our work. We are also a certified Minority and Women’s Business Enterprise.
What we can do for youWe design professional development experiences that foster belonging and inclusion. We conduct original research, as well as draw from others, especially content from women and people of color. We can help teams quickly build trust through creating small group sessions that allow for open discussion and mutual accountability. We don't do large trainings or webinars. We serve our clients through virtual and in-person learning experiences, workshops, meeting design, and facilitations. If you need strategic planning or program evaluation combined with team building, we have partners who can help.
Who we serveWe work with clients who believe change and progress moves at the speed of trust and they need to invest time and resources into building relationships. Our clients appreciate our high touch approach and bring us in for multiple small-group sessions across their organizations, usually starting with their leadership team. They understand there is no single right answer, there is always more to learn, and the journey is more valuable than the destination.
Our clients include companies from a wide range of industries, such as tech, real estate, nonprofits, and wineries. While we primarily work with teams and companies, we hold public sessions for individuals too.
How we approach learningWe push people to get uncomfortable because that is when the learning starts. Through working with us, you’ll deepen your individual and team capacity for collaboration, inclusion, trust, and, of course, curiosity.
