Why is it that some people seem to shine in any sphere in which they choose to exert themselves, whereas there are others that just cannot manage to even glimmer no matter how obvious their talent is? Could what you believe about yourself impact your success and failure?


According to Carol Dweck (Stanford Psychologist), your mindset plays a significant role in determining your achievement and success. According to Dweck, there are two types of mindsets:


  1. Fixed Mindset: The view that your qualities and abilities are fixed or ingrained; and
  2. Growth Mindset: We can develop our qualities and abilities through hard work and effort.


One area that is particularly affected is in the workplace. Many people spend half of their day at work and both your mindset and the mindset of those around you can have a significant impact on your life. An organisation that can adapt a growth mindset can position itself to thrive. How do you know if your workplace has a growth mindset? What does your mindset have to do with running a business efficiently?


To find the answer, you must look to the attitudes and behaviours that reflect the belief that an individual's talent isn't 'set in stone.' Talent can be developed. Leaders can emerge. People hold potential. Organisations that believe their employees have the ability to develop, grow and learn to seek out individuals who show the capacity for such growth. Organisations that work with each of these employees on advancing this growth end up thriving as a whole.


So how does having a growth mindset help you become more efficient? The best work comes from trying new things. With a growth mindset, you'll be more likely to search out new opportunities and strategies that you can test without having the fear of it not working the right way straight away and having the ability to test and improve products.
