Welcome back to Applied Curiosity Lab Radio! In this episode of ACLR we chomp on the Curiosity Bite that explores authenticity around how we present ourselves to the world relative to how we feel inside.

What do you hold in? On what occasions do you present a different image on the outside than how you feel inside?

How do we accurately judge authenticity?

When it comes to leadership, is appropriateness more important than authenticity?


Discuss, debate, and dissect with us!

The lens is – and always will be – curiosity. Each week, fun informal conversations center around one delectable Curiosity Bite designed to give your brain the time and ideas to think about thinking, to flex your curiosity muscle… and maybe even… revolutionize the way you think.

This week’s Curiosity Bite:


When was a time that you were acted nonchalant when you were going crazy inside? 


In this episode…Curious Questions asked and answered

How often is there a mismatch between how you feel and how you present?

What do you think Rosa Parks was thinking as she refused to go to the back of that bus?

What do you think MLK was thinking as he presented his I Have a Dream Speech?

What do you think George Bush was thinking as he was reading My Pet Goat as he was being told that a second plane crashed through World Trade Center?

Is suppressing your emotions required for leadership or is authenticity more important?
