Show Notes

“People have to learn how they can use their curiosity better for their own benefit, the benefit of their organisations, the benefit of their communities, or the benefit of the planet.”

Today we’re going meta as we explore the topic of curiosity with the expert himself - Costas Andriopoulos. Costas is a curious innovation and entrepreneurship researcher, passionate about teaching and helping founders and leaders make decisions that can improve their lives and those of people around them.

“For the last four or five years, I have been researching the topic of curiosity, most of my research is about how innovation is enhancing the workplace… I want to understand how people use curiosity to achieve interesting goals or find their purpose or to improve their lives.”

He’s currently writing his second book, The Power Of Purposeful Curiosity: Imagining the Unimaginable, so you can see why he’s the perfect guest for Hyper Curious - he embodies curiosity!

In today’s episode, Costas talks about how curiosity leads us to become better human beings, the commonalities of very curious people, the connection between resilience and curiosity, and why successful entrepreneurs are the ones who never stop searching. 

“A lot of entrepreneurs become obsessed with a product rather than with a problem. And I think the best entrepreneurs, the most successful ones are the ones who stay seduced by the new questions and the new problems, rather than their solution.”
