The framework of a growth mindset can provide motivation and support to employees as they progress in their careers. This post will explore how to develop a growth mindset in your employees and how doing so is beneficial to both the company and the individual.
What is a growth mindset?
According to Dr. Tchiki Davis, a growth mindset is the belief that our basic job skills can be fostered and improved upon through dedication and hard work. It’s not magic and there’s no secret formula.
In her book, “Mindset – Changing the Way You Think to Fulfill Your Potential”, Stanford Psychologist Carol Dweck explains that a fixed mindset assumes that our character, intelligence and creativity are givens that we can’t change. With the absence of a growth mindset, we don’t have the motivation to put in the effort, and so we get “stuck”.
