Adina B. Tovell, MBA, M.Ed., CPC

Adina is Chief Curiosity Officer and CEO of Courage to be Curious and unwaveringly committed to the belief that powerful things happen when people genuinely value themselves and others.

Having lived a life of striving for decades and experiencing persistent ‘not enoughness,’ Adina stumbled upon the transformative power of curiosity. It’s about the questions, but not just about the questions. It is also about shifting from a stance of judgement of self and others to one of fascination and wonder.

The Courage to be Curious community is filled with individuals and organizations that believe in thriving and not just surviving and are energized to achieve this by learning to be Productively and Courageously Curious.
