Growth Mindset program

Empowering your people to turn setbacks into improvement opportunities

Growth Mindset program

We currently live in a world of continuous change and growing uncertainty, employee turnover, disengagement, and even burnout rates are surging. One of the key reasons for this is that our brains are hardwired to resist change, avoid risk, and be averse to uncertainty.

Decades of research in behavioral psychology and neuroscience (specifically Carol Dweck, developmental psychologist at Stanford University) identified a way for organizations to cope with this: instilling a Growth mindset. 

People with a Growth Mindset believe that they can develop their talents and skills through commitment, education and perseverance. It helps employees take risks, embrace challenges, and maximize feedback and learnings.

The Business Case for Growth Mindset

To showcase the business value of nurturing a culture of continuous learning and feedback, we designed the visual on the right. This flowchart shows how Growth Mindset initiatives affect key organizational areas and metrics.

Depending on your unique situation and needs, we will identify, design, and implement the change interventions that will most directly impact the metrics and goals you want to achieve.

Our methodology

As with any impactful organizational change, Growth Mindset initiatives benefit strongly from a behaviorally informed approach. This is where our evidence-based, design-led methodology comes in:

  • 1. Behavioral Strategy: We co-create a clear plan of action informed by brain & behavior insights to map the goal, scope, priorities, risks, and metrics.

  • 2. Behavioral Insights: We identify the changes needed to embed Growth Mindset in habits, behaviors, and processes throughout your organization.

  • 3. Behavioral Design: We design a set of science-backed interventions that will help you achieve the desired changes in people and systems.

  • 4. Behavioral Change: We ensure positive, effective, and lasting adoption of Growth Mindset and a culture of continuous growth.

Growth Mindset in the Energy Transition

We work on Growth Mindset with a large energy manufacturer that provides energy to more than 50 million people. One of their top priorities is the energy transition, which calls for structural changes and a global shift towards renewable energy. 

In their position as a market leader, this transition requires their people to prepare for rapid change, disruption, and new challenges. They decided to nurture and strengthen the Growth Mindset of their people and asked us to help them with the change management.

Growth Mindset program FAQ

To effectively nurture a Growth Mindset culture in your organization, we designed a 3-month program in which we help you from start (change strategy) to finish (implementation & hand-over). Here are answers to some of your most frequently asked questions.

What does the GM program look like?

Over 3 months, we will work with your project team to drive the Growth Mindset initiative through our four phase methodology:

  1. Behavioral Strategy (week 1-2)
    We assemble the project team, define the change strategy, identify success and risk factors, map key metrics, and kick-start the project.
  2. Behavioral Insights (week 3-4)
    We facilitate deep dives with your Business Units, perform a behavioral analysis, and adapt our change strategy to the collected insights.
  3. Behavioral Design (week 5-6)
    We design evidence-based change interventions for nurturing a Growth Mindset culture that align well with your BU-specific context.
  4. Behavioral Change (week 7-12)
    The second half is all about implementing, measuring, optimizing, and scaling an effective and lasting Growth Mindset cultural change.
What are the deliverables?

At the end of these three months, you will have…

  • a Growth Mindset change strategy uniquely for your organization
  • a way to measure the effectiveness of this initiative
  • a map of behaviorally informed risks and opportunities
  • a collection of Growth Mindset-nurturing change interventions
  • aligned and engaged stakeholders and change champions

Who will we work with?

Our Growth Mindset program is always led by a senior behavioral expert and change consultant, backed by our research and operations team. This approach allows us to provide you with a dedicated contact, specialize the roles in our team, and increase our workload capacity when necessary.

What exactly are change interventions?

Behavioral scientists refer to interventions as a method of changing behavior for the better. We have collected hundreds of science-backed interventions and use frameworks like priorities-habits-systems and COM-B to pick them most effective interventions.

The perfect intervention is low effort, high impact, and clearly measurable in results. Here are some examples of Growth Mindset interventions:

  • Redesigning and optimising how feedback is given and received
  • Help leadership role model and communicate Growth Mindset
  • Giving employees the tools and strategies to speak-up during meetings
Are there any requirements?

To effectively drive this Growth Mindset program, we have learned that a few elements have to be present, which we can help you set up:

  • executive buy-in
  • steering commission
