GUEST POST from Stefan Lindegaard
It’s not about profit, you don’t have to be upbeat all the time and you actually have a hybrid mindset!
# 1 – Growth mindset equals business growth, profits
A common finding by Neuro Leadership Institute is that some leaders believe growth mindset is about profits. In reality, growth mindset is the continuous belief that improvement is possible and that failures are opportunities to learn
# 2 – You either have a growth or a fixed mindset
No, we have a hybrid mindset with growth and fixed traits. Whether one is stronger than the other is often situational. Know yourself in given situations and be careful when labeling others
# 3 – Organizations, rather than people, can have a growth mindset
A mindset is a personal thing and thus not a part of an organizational culture as such. However, the essence of the growth mindset in an organizational context is to instill a mindset that is wired towards always trying to get better rather than believing – and proving – that you are the best. It overlaps
# 4 – You have to be positive all the time
Developing a growth mindset is much more about self-awareness and development rather than being in a positive growth mode all the time. We all have our ups and downs
What’s your mindset and what behaviors does this bring along? What about your team? Let’s talk if you want some free resources or other help on this. Get in touch.
