Event description

Description

Taking the time to identify your mindset is an important step toward cultivating a culture of growth in yourself, your employees and your organization.

The growth mindset fosters curiosity and a passion for learning through effort and experience. People with growth mindsets respond especially well when things are not going well; they tend to stretch themselves, confront obstacles, embrace risk, and stick through the hard times. Rather than being embarrassed or blocked by a sense of deficiency, they can acknowledge what skill or capacity is missing and set to work to cultivate it. They take direct, wise, and compassionate action. “Love of challenge, belief in effort, resilience in the face of setbacks, greater creativity and success” are hallmarks of the growth mindset.

Clearly, cultivating a growth mindset helps people become more resilient. When challenges become difficult, folks with fixed mindsets tend to give up and miss out on learning. When challenges become difficult, folks with growth mindsets tend to roll up their sleeves and dive in.

We can shift how we filter our perceptions of ourselves and our experiences. That is part of our deepening reflective intelligence. That means we live our lives not about avoiding failure but about grabbing a hold of failure as an opportunity to learn, to improve, to master. Choosing to cultivate a growth mindset changes everything.
