Childlike curiosity is displayed in one who's always searching, reaching, exploring, and questioning. Recall that sense of wonder as you observe children in your world. They ask questions, probe at things around them, engage with everyone they meet. It's how little ones understand the world around them and how they fit in. To be childlike in your approach to the world makes you desirable to others. It pulls people to you and makes you irresistible. Being childlike as a professional is easy to do. It’s about taking a relaxed approach with others and letting your innate curiosity unfold. Think about someone you would like to know better. Maybe they’re a new colleague, a potential client, or prospective investor. The next time you’re engaged with them, make them feel the pull of desire to partner with you. Stimulate and charm them with your childlike curiosity.
