As a leader do you ask yourself how you can cultivate the characteristics that foster a growth mindset?
William Craig in his piece for Forbes covers off what we as business leaders can do to make sure our company is providing both an inspiring environment and a general spirit of momentum and growth. I love the references to recruiting for resilience, love of problem solving, hunger for learning and shared mission - in order that you don't slow down your growth. Momentum is everything so we all need to take practical steps to recruit people who can grow with us.
But on an organizational level, how can companies cultivate the characteristics that foster growth mindsets? Remember that a growth mindset is one in which the status quo and "good enough" are never good enough. It's not about progress for its own sake. And it's not about working yourself or your employees to exhaustion. We're talking about a much bigger picture than the daily grind. Even on a daily basis, there are several things business leaders can do to make sure their company provides an inspiring environment and a general spirit of momentum and growth. Such workplaces have several characteristics in common. Here are five worth considering.
