Are you curious? Are you curious on a regular basis? Do you want to know all about everything you see? If you said yes, then we’re like-minded, because I am curious about EVERYthing! So, today we’re talking with curiosity expert Diane Hamilton! Dr. Diane Hamilton is a nationally syndicated radio host, speaker, moderator, consultant, and educator. Through her work as the MBA Program Chair at the Forbes School of Business and at several other universities, she has taught more than 1000 business courses. I have no idea how she made the time to do all that! She is also the author of multiple books, including her most recent, Cracking the Curiosity Code: The Key to Unlocking Human Potential. She is the creator of the Curiosity Code Index assessment and I’m really excited today, (and really curious), to talk with her! Here we go- Enjoy!
