Living Your Values Series- Intellectual Curiosity - Part 2 with Jesse and Jay
How do we know when someone lives to our company values?
This is one of the main questions that Jesse and Jay answer in this second episode of the Living Your Values mini-series. Jesse shares the three main things he looks at in an individual when it comes to Intellectual Curiosity. First, spontaneous conversations may spark when sharing our reading list or the podcasts we listen to. Also, we can always make time for the things we prioritize. This is an important part of starting or changing a habit: time. Jesse also reflects on what traits he likes people to have when he is hiring. Together, they finish the conversation by discussing the opposite of values.
Like they say: always keep being a student. Intellectual Curiosity is a value that your superiors will truly cherish!
Jesse always looks for three things: one, the information consumption style; second, by what kind of people is this individual surrounded?; and third, what are they passionate about?
People always have time for the things they prioritize.
Find bite-size information that you enjoy consuming.
Curiosity works in a snowball effect.
Mentors don’t have to be your boss or someone inside the field you work with; they can be anyone you ask recurrent advice to.
Google and Youtube can be great sources of information.
It is okay to say, “I don’t know the answer, but I will find one.”
Identify your anti-values too.
