Welcome to our new Question Series: Curiosity Changes Everything!

Last year Box of Crayons celebrated 20 years of staying curious longer by doing what we do best — interrogating ideas, asking mighty questions and disrupting the status quo.

The series will highlight ideas from some of our favourite curious and great-question-seeking leaders: Desiree Adaway, Jean-Philippe Courtois, Aaron Dignan, Karin Hurt, Todd Kashdan, Liz Wiseman and our founder, Michael Bungay Stanier.
