IN/PSS (9) Moving From a Fixed Mindset to a Growth Mindset Creates a Gritty Workforce


         Grit = Perseverance + Passion for Long-Term Goals

Approach the journey to mastery like a marathon rather than a sprint
          Angela Duckworth

How does mindset play such a critical role in how you cope in the workplace?

Research has demonstrated that managers/leaders with a growth mindset have more productive staff, create more innovative environments, and have work teams that accomplish more. In comparison, managers/leaders who maintain a fixed mindset are controlling and abusive and promote an environment where employees feel judged.
