LEADERSHIP CULTURE LEARNING

​

'Is a person with a growth mindset really that FIXED?'

Carol Dweck is the researcher who introduced the terms 'growth mindset' and 'fixed mindset'.

​

Some of the basics of the theory are:

  • A person who embraces mistakes to learn is said to have a GROWTH MINDSET;
  • A person who avoids mistakes (and can be devastated by failure) is said to have a FIXED MINDSET.

​

​

Now, I know that you're a leader who's a learner and therefore you MUST have a growth mindset. Right?

​

No. I don't think it's that simple.

​

In my experience, none of us have a growth mindset or a fixed mindset.

​

I believe that every moment, we are all oscillating on a scale from an extreme growth mindset to an extremely fixed mindset.

​

Every day my ego guides me to identify as someone who has a growth mindset.

​

But, do I ALWAYS act like someone with a growth mindset? ABSOLUTELY NOT.

​

There are times when I get upset, frustrated with my mistakes and can be more closed to feedback than I'd like to admit.

​

At those moments, I'm definitely trending towards the fixed mindset end of said scale.

​

Does make sense to you? And does it sound familiar to how you find yourself behaving from time to time?

​

If so, I'd say: you're normal!

​

Now that you've identified those oscillations, you can become more aware of them and gently shift yourself back towards acting with a growth mindset more often.

​

In short, my leadership culture learning for you this week is:

TEAM CULTURE TOOL

'Do NOT forget to capture the memories of your culture!'

If you believe that your team culture is important, then one of the most important things I believe you can do is to capture the memories of your growing culture.

​

Whether you make a video, put a bunch of photos on the wall, write a poem or create a yearbook, that's up to you.

​

But, as 2023 comes towards the end, how will you capture the memories you've created this year?

​

For inspiration, check out this company yearbook created by Karen Joyce, Paul Mead and the team at SheMaps - it's really impressive πŸ™Œ

​

​

If you need some more ideas or guidance on how to capture the memories

of your culture, please let me know.
