Developing a Growth Mindset in the Workplace - now available in a short live online format
We are delighted to now be offering our Growth Mindset training in a short, 2.5 hour live online version.
Training for changing times
Growth mindset training helps participants understand the power that developing a growth mindset can bring – fostering creativity, innovation and the ability to handle difficulties and setbacks. Delegates also discover the practical ways it is possible to cultivate a growth mindset in both themselves and others.
“Really useful and interesting content”
What can be the result of developing a growth mindset?
Having a growth rather than a fixed mindset can result in improved performance, greater confidence and more adaptability when facing challenges at work. Constructive feedback is welcomed as it is believed that mistakes and criticism help develop talents and abilities. Others’ successes are found to be inspiring rather than threatening, it leads to a feeling of empowerment to try again and find a lasting solution to the inevitable challenges that occur at work.
The dangers of fixed mindset thinking
Conversely, in the workplace, fixed mindset thinking can lead to responding negatively when failure happens, leading to more reticence about trying something new, either now or in the future, for fear of failure or being seen to fail. It can also lead to behaviours such as covering up mistakes, blaming others and ignoring constructive feedback.
“Very relevant to my job in HR and supporting services”
The organisational benefits
For leaders, the course encourages reflection on the benefits a growth mindset culture can bring to their organisation. It questions whether an emphasis on striving for success could be inhibiting risk-taking and hindering learning through fear of failure, rather than success evolving from failure and employees learning and developing from this.
“Well delivered - excellent trainer very engaging”
Benefits for participants
The benefits of attending a growth mindset training course include:
- Recognise how to empower employees to be more curious and constantly seek ways to improve how they carry out their role and achieve objectives.
- Provide opportunities for employees to identify and build their strengths to achieve more.
- Help those who struggle with failure, who are too quick to say, “I can’t”, and don’t believe in the power of effort.
- Give employees the confidence to step outside their comfort zone and try new approaches.
“Very useful. Thoroughly enjoyable and looking forward to implementing with the team.”
