What do we mean by ‘mindset’?
And what can we do to change it?
Mindset is how we approach things – how we face the world.
Do we react to situations, or respond? Are abilities fixed, or can we grow?
How do we move from assigning blame to taking responsibility?
And why does any of this matter?
This 3-hour team workshop includes an overview of key ideas and concepts.
Participants also explore their own thinking and behaviours.
What might we do more of? And what might we do differently?
We finish by identifying key action steps, both as individuals and as a team.
1 :: Fixed or Growth
In the research of Stanford professor Dr Carol Dweck, a Fixed mindset indicates a belief that our skills, abilities and potential are somehow pre-ordained and limited.
Adopting a Growth mindset enables us to learn and develop – in all areas of our lives.
2 :: React or Respond
Austrian psychologist Viktor Frankl survived the Nazi concentration camps. There, he came to the realisation that while we cannot always choose what happens to us, we can always choose our response.
Life inevitably throws challenges at us. When it does, will we instinctively react, or thoughtfully respond?
3 :: You to I to We
Dependent people blame others: “You did that, it’s your fault.” Independent people take responsibility for their actions: “This one is on me, I’ve got it.”
The real power comes when we think – and behave – interdependently: “We can do this. Let’s go!”
- Understanding that mindset is a skill they can improve
- Acquiring the language and tools to make those improvements
- Team members taking more personal responsibility for their decisions and actions
- A collective shift towards more collaborative action
