About Becki Saltzman, Curiosity Expert
Becki works with people who want to learn to apply curiosity strategically for innovation, problem solving, creativity, and for living more fulfilling and adventurous lives.
Becki’s family of auctioneers taught her well. They were master persuaders who were serious about sales as a noble endeavor. They understood the importance of arousing curiosity in their customers.
What she learned in the greasy warehouses of her youth, she confirmed in the dusty halls of academia. Trained in behavioral science/applied psychology at Washington University in St. Louis, as a graduate student Becki conducted award-winning research using a mathematical model of behavior prediction. She went on to a career as a fashion buyer, and then spent 20-years as a top real estate broker. All the while she continued to study curiosity and the role it plays in innovation, creativity, problem solving, and lifestyle design.
To understand the role of curiosity in the lives of remarkable people, Becki spent two decades studying and collaborating with behavioral scientists, embedding herself into a variety of industries and cultures, and conducting interviews around the world. These findings and adventures provided the ingredients for Applied-Curiosity training frameworks and the Living Curiously Method–a 5-step method for using curiosity to be remarkable and do good stuff.
Becki is the author of Living Curiously: How to Use Curiosity to Be Remarkable and Do Good Stuff, and Arousing the Buy Curious: Real Estate Pillow Talk for Patrons and Professionals. Her blog, Living Curiously, is an exercise apparatus for flexing curiosity muscles (so they don’t atrophy).
Becki is a trainer in Applied-Curiosity. She speaks and writes about curiosity as a tool for business insights and advantages, and as a lens for adventure.
Becki loves great travel adventures, speaking to inspired audiences, dancing on crowded dance floors, and sipping brown drinks.
