DR. CAROL DWECK THE POWER OF MINDSET Growth Mindset Fixed Mindset Intelligence is static Intelligence can be developed Leads to desire to look smart Leads to desire to learn

DR. CAROL DWECK MINDSET AND COMPANY CULTURE “We know from our studies that people with the fixed mindset do not admit and correct their deficiencies. And a company that cannot selfcorrect cannot survive . . . Instead of learning, growing, and moving the company forward, everyone starts worrying about being judged . . . It’s hard for courage and innovation to survive a company-wide fixed mindset.”

DR. CAROL DWECK MINDSET AND LEADERSHIP “In the fixed mindset it’s not enough just to succeed. It’s not enough just to look smart and talented. You have to be pretty much flawless. And you have to be flawless right away... After all, if you have it you have it, and if you don’t you don’t... This desire to think of yourself as perfect is often called CEO disease.”

HOW LEADERSHIP INFLUENCES CULTURE

CULTURE IS FRACTAL IN NATURE Values are the governing and unifying pattern across scales

LEADERS’ BELIEFS SHAPE COMPANY CULTURE

UNCONSCIOUS BELIEFS CAN HAVE UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES

CULTIVATING CONSCIOUS LEADERSHIP

01 BEGIN WITH SELF AWARENESS Only by gaining greater understanding of our own beliefs, gifts, edges, and fears can we lead from our full potential.

02 LEAD BY EXAMPLE Growth mindset cultures succeed because leaders transparently engage in the growth process. o  This requires courage and self-appreciation.

03 FOSTER ALIGNMENT ACROSS SCALES Create systems for mentoring and accountability at all levels of your organization.

04 COMMIT TO ONGOING EVOLUTION As your organization evolves and shifts states, so must you as a leader to continue to serve the changing needs of your business.
