The Power of Curiosity: How to Have Real Conversations that Create Collaboration, Innovation, and Understanding is a great self-help book that women really connect with. I think this is because we connect curiosity with conversations. Lots of people believe they are curious because they are interested in what makes something work, what is inside a box etc. Rarely are people curious with others, choosing instead to talk about themselves and tell others what to do.
When we are curious in our conversations with others, we are focused on them, listening to their ideas and perspectives. We stop judging others, instead open up to better understand them. As we begin to understand others, we appreciate their unique perspectives and understand them on a deeper level, all of which create richer relationships. This works even in conflict.
