Dr. Heidi Grant is one of the world’s foremost experts on Growth Mindset and its use in organizations. She has studied mindsets and their impact on adult performance for decades, in collaboration with her graduate mentor, Dr. Carol Dweck.

In this talk, she describes the mindsets individuals and organizations bring to the goals they pursue, and explains why we should avoid a Fixed Mindset — one where we are constantly attempting to prove ourselves and outperform others. Instead, we should embrace a Growth Mindset — where we believe the point of the work we do each day is to get better, rather than be good. When we embrace a Growth Mindset, we welcome smart risks and are less afraid of failure, both keys to personal and professional success. We more easily remain agile and resilient in the face of change and challenge, and experience greater well-being. In this talk, you’ll learn:

• How to identify your own mindset, and the mindset of others in your organization

• How mindsets influence persistence, creativity, engagement, resilience, and performance

• Strategies for changing your own mindset

• Strategies for creating a growth mindset culture, on your team or in your organization

Special topics include growth mindset in: leadership, feedback, career conversations, coaching, goal-setting, and psychological safety
