“We need to cultivate a growth mindset”. It sounds motivating and uplifting, but what exactly does it mean, and just how aware are we of open and fixed mindsets? Research carried out by American psychologist, Carol Dweck, suggests that when organisations embrace and nurture an organisational culture which enables a growth mindset, employees feel more empowered and committed, while simultaneously offering far greater support for collaboration and innovation. So how can organisations shift their whole culture to support and cultivate a growth mindset?

Join Nigel Cassidy and this month’s guests – Helen Deavin, Managing Director at Mathew Syed Consulting, and Isabel Duarte, Head of Leadership Development at Tucows – as we explore the science, benefits and pillars of nurturing a growth mindset in your organisation.
