Dr Alison Horstmeyer is a 'curious person'. A former Fortune 500 business executive , she turned to academia and describes herself as a curiosity activator. Her view of professional relationships concentrates on the emotional and motivational attributes of ourselves and our teams. Within that is curiosity, a core skill and tool for connected leadership.  Accepting vulnerability can help us to be authentically curious. The definition of leadership has changed in the digital age. Leaders enable the 'how?' and teams are asked for their input. Social media enables curiosity, using technology to breakdown silos and build genuine connections.

Andy Lopata and the SUMO guy, Professor Paul McGee, discuss happiness and his new book 'The Happiness Revolution: A Manifesto for Living Your Best Life' by Andy Cope and Paul McGee.  Lockdown has changed perspectives. The role of technology and social media in maintaining connections has been very important, but has also caused problems when it hasn't been used properly. A balance is required in identifying 'happiness', it doesn't always need to be goal orientated, you can be happy but still have further ambitions. Unhappiness has led to mental health problems. It is ok not to feel happy all the time. Happier people find it easier to form professional relationships.
