Hacks to take away:

  1. Practice and Curiosity Walks: Shayna emphasizes the importance of practicing curiosity by engaging in activities like taking curiosity walks, where she seeks out new information about something she doesn’t know much about. This practice not only enhances her keynote speeches but also fosters innovation.
  2. Building Community in Business: She challenges business owners and leaders to transform curiosity walks into a method for building community within their organizations. By interacting with employees and valuing their input, leaders can harness the potential for profitability and innovation within their teams.
  3. Continuous Education: Shayna advocates for continuous self-education as a deep expression of curiosity. She suggests spending time with books, visiting libraries, and engaging in community learning activities like book clubs to broaden one’s knowledge and perspective.
  4. Connecting with People and Nature: Throughout the discussion, Shayna highlights the interconnectedness between curiosity, community, and the natural world. She underscores the importance of connecting with people and nature as essential components of personal and professional growth.
  5. Challenging Stereotypes: Shayna challenges stereotypes and conventional narratives, particularly in media representations like movies and superheroes. She critiques the portrayal of women and the concept of the solitary hero, advocating instead for collaboration and a more inclusive representation of diversity and leadership.
