  8. 8. DO YOU THINK THAT PEOPLE DIFFER? WHY? Today most experts believe that it’s not nature or nurture, genes or environment, but from conception on, there is a constant give and take between the two. “Not only do genes and environment cooperate as we develop, but genes require input from the environment to work properly” Gilbert Gottlieb, neuroscientist People may start with different temperaments and different aptitudes, but it is clear that experience, training, and personal effort take the rest of the way
  9. 9. What does all this mean for us? Research has shown that the view we adopt for ourselves profoundly affects the way we lead our life. It can determine whether we become the person we want to be and whether we accomplish the things we value. Q: How can a simple belief have the power to transform our psychology and as a result the way we reacting in work&life challenges? A: The answer is related to the mindset we follow when we are approaching a challenge. According to research the MINDSET determines our goals, our reaction to failure and challenges, our belief about effort, our attitude towards other’s successes and received feedback

  11. 11. In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success— without effort. Fixed mindset creates an urgency to prove yourself over and over Will I succeed or fail? Will I look smart or dump? Will I be accepted or rejected? Will I feel like a winner or a loser?
  12. 12. In an agile(growth) mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work. Although people may differ in their initial talents, interests, temperaments, everyone can change and grow through application and experience. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Virtually all great people have had these qualities. Becoming is better than being LINDA RISING
  13. 13. LINDA RISING What would make someone a nonlearner? The fixed mindset. Being afraid of not being smart in a certain challenge makes you to reject an opportunity to learn. Smart people should always succeed. Fixed mindset does not want to expose deficiencies

Increasingly, many are arguing that it’s just as important to have good systems – loosely coupled structures that leverage the group’s aggregate knowledge and abilities – than to rely on the performance of a few superstars.

It is reflected in the mindset, our readiness to grow. Culture of Growth and TeamWork
