Growth Mindset Training

People with a Growth Mindset believe that they can develop their talents and skills through commitment, education and perseverance. In this training, your team will learn to apply this mindset to take risks, embrace challenges, and maximize feedback and learnings.

Having worked with 100+ companies in applying behavioral science, we have identified dozens of science-backed Growth Mindset interventions that will help you develop an agile, adaptive, and resilient organization that thrives in constant change.

Why Growth Mindset training?

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 (especially Carol Dweck, developmental psychologist at Stanford University) identified a way for organizations to cope with this: instilling a Growth mindset.

Since then, behavioral science has found out which Growth Mindset change interventions are most effective across all levels: individual, team, department, and  organization. We will show you the ones that are most relevant for your situation.

    Reviews from attendees

    Interesting approach based on neuroscience and different from other change management workshops.

    Very concrete, with tangible tools and examples. And then applying the theory right away.

    I loved the fact that somehow this is something that we can put into practice on our upcoming projects.

    I really like the context/introduction provided, based on science and also the 3 tools provided that are very useful for our work.

    Great to have break out sessions and really apply the knowledge in a snappy way; it sticks to mind having done that.  The speakers were also really knowledgeable and the session was super engaging.

    Speakers communication and way to share the messages was excellent. What I liked the most were definitely the activities and, in particular, the fact that they were adapted to NN challenges and context.

    Useful tools and very practical hands on exercises, yet fun!

    It has encouraged us to actively reflect on various types of bias in our work. And there are many!

    Best combination of nerd and practical, super inspiring!
