Grow your mindset #5

You will create the growth mindset environment in your company where employees are not afraid of taking risks, meeting challenges, or expressing new ideas. They will be more motivated to work harder.


  1. If you are a boss, think what kind of boss you are: growth or a fixed mindset?
    Respond yourself to these questions:
    1. How do I act towards others in the workplace?
    2. Am I focused on my power more than on the employees’ well-being?
    3. Do I ever reaffirm my status by demeaning others?
    4. Did I ever try to hold back a high-performing employee because he threatened me?
  2. Consider ways to help your employees develop on the job
    It can be apprenticeships, workshops, coaching sessions.
  3. Look at your company from the growth mindset view
    Think how you create open communication and teamwork in the workplace. To do this in the best way, we recommend you to read the book “Who Says Elephants Can’t Dance?” by Lou Gerstner
  4. Make it possible to foster alternative views and give constructive feedback.
    Make discussion panels with your subordinates. You also can put an anonymous suggestion box on a wall.
