In these uncertain and stressful times, every leader needs strategies they can use to enhance their own psychological agility and resilience. Just as importantly, they need ways of supporting agility and resilience in their teams, and in their organizations more broadly. They need to be able to spot opportunities in disruption, find creative solutions to daunting problems, and keep their people fully and productively engaged. Decades of motivation science provides us with just such a strategy—adopting and encouraging a growth mindset.
Join Dr. Heidi Grant to learn evidence-based techniques for adopting a growth-focused, “Get Better” mindset—one in which learning and improving through challenge and complexity is key. In this mindset, we welcome risk and are less afraid of failure, both of which are critical to personal and professional success and resilience—now more than ever. Learn not only how to identify your own mindset in the moment, but also how your mindset can influence your persistence, creativity, and engagement. In addition, you’ll learn how to encourage others to focus on growth in difficult times, and create a “Get Better” mindset culture on your team and in your organization.
