4 steps to a growth mindset for teams

June 20, 2020 / ANDREW GILLESPIE

Having a growth mindset is a fundamental tool to navigating the pandemic. As organisations go through changes to how they operate including potentially letting employees go and restructuring, teams and individuals will need a growth mindset to settle into their new roles. For the sectors where COVID-19 has meant a rush in sales, their teams too will need a growth mindset as they learn how to manage new supply chains and fast-paced work in an uncertain climate.

Carol Dweck, a leader educational psychologist, defines a growth mindset as a set of beliefs and attitudes which encourage people to seek out challenges and use failures as lessons to be learnt from. People with a growth mindset are open to change, an attribute which shouldn’t be undervalued during a pandemic.
