Listen to Choose Curiosity Over Criticism on: Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Google Podcasts
When it comes to miscommunication and frustration that happens among us as humans, I believe so much of it comes from not having the ‘whole story’ (even though most of the time, we think we do). In today’s episode, I want to talk with you about handling judgment and criticism from others (I have a personal experience of my own to share), why the concept of choosing curiosity over criticism doesn’t only apply to others, and more.
I’ve learned that open-ended, honest questions can truly allow you to move forward with knowledge and understanding, which greatly helps when it comes to embarrassment, frustration, and miscommunication – especially in relationships. Not being afraid to ask questions, and in return, gain the knowledge and understanding you need, will no doubt positively impact your relationships. I hope this episode encourages you to choose curiosity over criticism when it comes to yourself, and those in the world around you!
In this episode, Choose Curiosity Over Criticism, we cover:
- My own, personal experience dealing with judgment and criticism from others
- The power of asking honest questions
- Why the concept of curiosity over criticism can apply to yourself too

More about the Good Movement Draws Good Movement podcast:
In stockmanship (the art and science of handling cattle in a safe, effective, low-stress manner), we have this phrase . . . good movement draws good movement.
It’s this thing that happens when we ask a small group of cattle, maybe a cow, or a pair to move out in a certain direction and their movement draws the whole herd into moving in the same direction.
Good movement happens when we approach the cattle with a positive attitude, read and really listen to what they’re telling us, and communicate accordingly.
We don’t approach the aware, flighty cattle the same as we do the tame, docile cattle. We adjust ourselves, our energy, and approach, and communicate with each differently.
These adjustments help us effectively draw good movement from each, which then draws good movement from the herd. But it starts with us.
The same is true for humans. Good movement starts with us.
Welcome to Good Movement Draws Good Movement, the podcast where farmers, ranchers, and rural folks can grow relationally through awareness, understanding, and effective communication.
Hey, it’s me – T. I’m your host, and I, along with my guests, will be covering topics related to drawing good movement – things like self and social awareness, brain science, positive psychology, extending grace, and so much more.
We’ll share tools that can help you understand why you are the way you are, why others are the way they are, and how you can use that to step out of self-told lies with grace and compassion to draw good movement in conversations, relationships, and life in rural America.
