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.”

CYCLES & CHANGE IN COMPANIES
THERE ARE MANY TYPES OF CYCLES IN COMPANIES o o o o o Company lifecycle Leadership lifecycle Product lifecycle Employee lifecycle Partnership lifecycle o o o o o Annual cycle Quarterly cycle Monthly cycle Weekly cycle Daily cycle
THESE CYCLES OFTEN DIFFER IN PHASE When differences in phase across scales are unreconciled or unacknowledged, things can feel disjointed for one or more parties. EXAMPLE Company Engineers New Hires Packing up to move offices In the middle of product launch Just starting
LOSING THE POWER OF TRANSITIONS In the absence of acknowledged transitions, people can have difficulty shifting their behavior and can miss learning opportunities. This is especially true for endings and beginnings. Beginning End Middle
INVESTING IN THE HARVEST One of the biggest opportunities for individual and team learning is at the end of cycles. Taking time to reﬂect and share learnings serves as rocket fuel for the next phase. Beginning End Middle
ALIGNMENT AS A DESIGN CHALLENGE Leaders and culture designers need to create systems that allow all cycle stages to ﬂourish simultaneously in the business ecosystem.
