Stay Curious: The Importance of Continually Asking Questions

This week, I am so excited to welcome Sonja Pemberton back to the podcast! She previously joined us in Episode 422 for a live coaching session. And I can’t wait for you to learn more from her today as we talk about how to stay curious, dispel the myth of the other, and be intentionally inclusive.

As a speaker and organizational inclusion strategist, Sonja has been privileged to lead, mentor, and coach all career levels and generations in leadership development, communication, and culture. She has worked with startups to Fortune 100 companies, providing a wealth of knowledge and experience. 

Sonja is passionate about equipping individuals, organizations, and communities with the understanding and tools for sustainable behavior change by learning to manage their most valuable human resource: their brains! The ability to create safe containers for people to experience Transformational MindShifts has been the cornerstone of her success.

In this episode, we’ll explore:

  • The importance of staying curious and what staying curious allows us to do
  • Why we naturally focus on differences and her transformational work around othering 
  • How much organizations are spending on diversity and inclusion, and what is actually working
  • Why, if you’re not intentionally including, you are unintentionally excluding
  • Sonja’s current favorites: Book: The Biology of Belief, Speaker: Oprah Winfrey, and Podcast: The Big Talk
