Create a Growth Mindset Culture
NLI defines growth mindset as the belief that your skills and abilities can be improved, and that ongoing development is the goal of the work you do. However, creating a growth mindset culture isn’t just about having optimistic employees, but creating a space where employees strive to learn, enjoy being challenged, and feel encouraged to develop new skills.
By making small, lasting changes to everyday habits, employees can bring to life the priorities of improving themselves, rather than proving themselves, and stay aligned in times of uncertainty.
In trying to better understand and apply growth mindset to make organizations more human, the NeuroLeadership Institute has conducted wide-ranging research of organizations around the world.
Below we’ve laid out a compilation of our latest research, case studies, videos and more to help you and your organization understand the impact growth mindset can have on your organization.
