The Benefits of a Growth Mindset in the Workplace.

May 29, 2023

Our mindset is the self-perception we hold about ourselves and the world. The mindset we adopt for ourselves can profoundly affect the way we live our lives. As many of you know, Carol Dweck popularized the idea of fixed and growth mindsets.

She helped shine the light on how a fixed mindset leads to a desire to prove oneself by winning, while a growth mindset leads to a desire to improve oneself by learning.

A few months ago, I highlighted a podcast that outlined some of the scientific evidence showing how a growth mindset can create a better workplace. In essence, mindsets aren’t limited to individuals as an organization can have a cultural mindset that influences everyone.

I recently came across this study that focused on how an organizational growth mindset leads to better individual and company performance. Three key insights from this study include:

  1. Employees with a growth mindset are more open to feedback, which means they’re more likely to improve.
  2. Managers with a growth mindset are better performance evaluators.
  3. A culture of growth mindset improves team collaboration.

For the leadership coaches and organizational development specialists who read Wisdom Well, I think you’ll find this NeuroLeadership Institute study particularly fascinating.
