CSO (7) Coaching for Grit and Growth Mindset Will Predict Workplace Success


How can you sustain effort and interest even when it is evident that progress is halting?

How does grit and growth mindset matter in the workplace?

As posited by Pierre Battah (CBC News), "employees have long looked for the grail of predictors of exceptional performance." Although intelligent quotient (IQ), emotional intelligence (EI), upbringing, and charisma have been touted as the attributes for success, through the work of Angela Duckworth (2005), it has been shown that it is more one'ís passion for achieving long-term objectives and tenacity and perseverance for overcoming obstacles that get in the way that may be the factor that will predict workplace success.  In her research, Duckworth isolated Grit as a non-cognitive trait that is based on an individual'ís passion for a particular long-term goal or end state, couples with a powerful motivation to achieve their objective.
