Essential Practices of Growth Mindset Organizations

When you think about those, who have achieved greatness in their lives, whether they are successful, skilled, or brilliant, how do you think they got there? Did they work hard to develop such characteristics? Were they just fortunate or gifted?

Do you believe that these characteristics are the consequence of hard effort, tenacity, and a willingness to learn from mistakes repeatedly? Alternatively, do you think that talent, intellect, and achievement are inherited and that some individuals are just naturally brilliant in specific areas while others aren’t so much?

Leaders must be role models of a growth mindset.

Leadership development has turned to role models to overcome some of the difficulties associated with passing on needs to future leaders. The solution to our leadership challenges will be found in pointing to the role models, telling others who they are, and proposing that they replicate what leaders do.

Encourage employees to take risks and embrace failure

Creativity is a necessary talent for developing breakthroughs that will revolutionize businesses, and experimenting is a necessary component of this process. Experimentation is accompanied by failure, and failure is often repeated.

On the other hand, employees today will frequently go to any length to avoid failing. There is danger in returning to old, tried-and-true strategies that are safe but unlikely to produce change or move the organization toward its objectives.

Why should you encourage a culture of learning and curiosity in your organization?

An abundance of evidence suggests that when organizations encourage curiosity as part of their corporate culture, they are more likely to achieve extraordinary achievements. In the workplace, a high degree of curiosity has been associated with better solutions to corporate issues, better connections amongst coworkers, less stress, and overall improved job performance.

The fact that everyone, not just the owners or managers, is always learning means that when attempting to solve corporate challenges, you will receive a broader diversity of viewpoints, which typically translates into better, more inventive solutions.

Offering employees the opportunity to learn and improve

Learning and development are often cited as one of the most desired advantages by employees from their employers. According to research, over one-third (32 percent) of IT professionals stated that the ability to further their education, either via employee development or through tuition reimbursement, was the most valuable aspect of their employment. In addition to health and fitness programs and in-office amenities.

Providing employees with learning opportunities has been shown to boost employee satisfaction. Enhanced earnings, less absenteeism, improved productivity, and increased creativity are all associated.

Celebrating success together as a team

Being aware of your accomplishments and encouraging managers and employees to recognize one another is an important aspect of building an inspiring and supportive atmosphere. A strong culture of recognition and appreciation enhances engagement, productivity, team spirit, and resistance to problems in any organization. 

Of course, these qualities positively influence retention and employee ambassadorship since employees are more willing to share the news with pride when their employer recognizes and appreciates their contributions.

In our hectic day, it’s all too easy to lose sight of what has been accomplished and instead concentrate only on the next job at hand without pausing and considering what has been accomplished. However, suppose you choose to disregard your team’s victories, you will lose out on a critical chance to motivate your team to even greater achievements and enhance your leadership skills in the process.

Hi there Change-Agent

I’m Ngan Nguyen, I work as an Intuitive Strategist that is committed to empowering you to create your best life and bring your unique vision to the world. Originally a Portlandian now turned Bostonian, I love personal development, spending time reading, writing, and learning. What I enjoy most is helping passionate and committed people like yourself to transform their lives, revolutionize their work, and create greater impact in the world.

I do this by bringing together over a decade of business strategy experience and spiritual principles of success in a cohesive way to create immediate results, meaningful impact, and fast-paced amplified success.

My passion for the knowledge and principles that I now share with clients came as a need that later became a passion. Growing up in post-war Vietnam, I suffered from every possible form of abuse. At 16 years old, was homeless after leaving home to avoid a challenging situation.

When we are pushed to our limits, we find out what we’re made of. I quickly realized that if I wanted to stop being a victim of my circumstances, I needed to create a new reality for myself. I decided to transform my experiences into wisdom, resilience, and bravery, and that decision changed my life.

At that time, I had a longing for more. More meaning, growth, and purpose. Eventually, this longing drove me to enroll in night school, eventually graduating, and build several successful start-ups in renewable energy while working on my MBA. This journey led me to a rewarding and exciting career in strategy advisory. Through this, I worked with business leaders of Fortune 100 companies and at McKinsey & Company.

Over 10 years in an advisory role with major companies allowed me to develop an expertise in strategy. Combining this with my love for personal development and people coming together to create something beautiful that inspires and benefits others, I now work as an intuitive strategist that empower my clients to step into their truth in order to create what they desire most in their lives, and in the world.

When we believe in ourselves, we grow. Growth and personal development go hand in hand with success. That’s why I help people who dare to question their realities step back into their power and create the extraordinary results they’ve longed to experience.

We need more people to bring their passion, humanity, wisdom, and mastery into the world. Are you ready to discover your purpose and create your best life? I would love to learn more about you and support you creating your own unique expression in the world.
