Growth mindset lecture

Let LEAD help foster curiosity, innovation and performance with the right mindset.

What is a growth mindset?

A Growth mindset believes that abilities can be developed through effort and persistence, whereas a Fixed mindset refers to the belief that abilities are innate and unchangeable. Mindset is fundamentally about how we understand abilities and development opportunities.

Research suggests that a growth mindset increases the ability to learn from mistakes, creating greater engagement, job performance, innovation and commitment.

At the same time, having a Fixed mindset can have serious consequences. In organizations where a fixed mindset dominates, leaders and employees find it difficult to accept critical feedback and may even try to hide mistakes and take shortcuts to achieve goals. In a world of constant change and repeated organizational transformations, the mindset of individuals and organizations is crucial to their ability to succeed in the long term. Here, the Growth mindset is the psychological foundation for the learning and development that will ensure the survival of companies.a

Do you believe that abilities are innate and unchangeable? Or do you believe that skills can be developed through effort and persistence?

Whether we understand abilities as fixed (Fixed mindset) or changeable (Growth mindset) has an impact on how we act when facing challenges or receiving feedback from others.
One of the benefits of a growth mindset is that mistakes become something to talk about and learn from, and developmental feedback is a natural part of everyday organizational life. Several of the world's leading companies, such as Microsoft, have already incorporated a growth mindset as a permanent part of their organizational culture. And it's certainly not without reason.
