Have you ever felt that you weren't serving up to your full potential?
Maybe you've hit some bumps in your job or personal life which seem impossible to resolve.
But what if I told you that the key lies within you?
I am Eric, your Prosci Change Practitioner; let me share with you how a growth mindset could benefit you.
What is Growth Mindset?
A growth mindset is a concept that your skills and intelligence are not fixed. Therefore, they are still can be developed through diligence and commitment.
This also means that you view failure as an opportunity to learn and grow rather than a setback, helping you to accept challenges and remain positive in the face of adversity.
What is the difference between a growth mindset and a fixed mindset?
Individuals with fixed mindsets feel that their skills and knowledge are permanent or irreversible.
They may avoid challenges for fear of failure or try to prove themselves rather than learn.
And as I mentioned, growth mindset people believe that abilities can be developed. They view challenges as opportunities for the learning process.
Growth Mindset at the Workplace:

A growth mindset is very useful in the context of work.
Employees having this kind of attitude are more open to feedback and more willing to take on challenges. They are also more likely to be able to adjust and adapt during difficult situations.
However, building a growth mindset in the workplace requires more than just individual effort.
Employers may build a growth mindset culture by providing opportunities for growth and development, encouraging testing and risk-taking, and celebrating efforts and success.
