How important is curiosity in L&D?

New tech, new approaches, new fads: Our industry is awash with exciting developments, but do we approach them with the curiosity of a magpie or the curiosity of a scientist?

On this week’s GoodPractice Podcast, Ross Garner is joined by Owen Ferguson and Giorgio Migliaccio to look at curiosity in Learning & Development. We discuss the importance of questions, the love of learning and the fun of failing (quickly!).
