Talent Isn’t Fixed and Other Mindsets That Lead to Greatness

Talent Isn’t Fixed and Other Mindsets That Lead to Greatness | "employee engagement enhancement" | Scoop.it

According to Stanford University’s Carol Dweck, the psychologist behind the much-praised book Mindset: The New Psychology for Success, the attitude that we bring to our creative work—and to mentoring our juniors—can play a huge role in shaping just how much of our inborn talents we realize.

If we believe that someone’s talent is fixed—including our own—we are effectively writing off any options for growth. But if we believe that talent, or intelligence, or any other ability, evolves as a result of how much effort we put in, the opportunities are endless.

I chatted with Dweck to learn more about how a “growth mindset” can impact creative achievement on a personal and a professional level.

Karin Sebelin's curator insight, February 16, 2014 11:13 AM

Behavior matters, especially for building trust. The truth is that in every relationship what you do and how you do it has a greater impact than anything you say. You can say “I love you” to someone, but only through the right action you are able to convince. Words can be wonderful, but without the right action they are useless. When words are followed by the right validating behavior, they can increase trust.


Trust is established through action … ~ Hank Paulson, Goldman Sachs

 

But how can we increase trust through behavior?

 

Read and follow these 13 points of behavior:

 

1. Talk straight, tell the truth

2. Demonstrate respect

3. Create transparency

4. Know what is right and what is wrong

5. Show loyalty and give credit to others

6. Deliver results

7. Get better and improve capabilities

8. Confront reality

9. Clarify expectations and make things happen

10. Practice accountability

11. Extend trust … trust people and they will trust you

12. Listen first before you speak and act

13. Keep commitments

 

Keep in mind that each interaction with a person is a “moment of trust”.

Business owners everywhere face multiple challenges, not the least of which is increasing the engagement levels of employees, in order to facilitate greater productivity and ultimately profitability.


One way in which business owners can increase the engagement of their employees, is to look closely at how successful franchise groups help their franchisees to remain engaged with the franchisor's offering, and ensure that their staff are also engaged with the relevant brand.


This excellent article written by the leader of a franchise group, stresses that in any change process it is important to remember and value your employees in all of the changes you make, and it outlines 14 ways his group is approaching the employee engagement challenge in the coming 12 months.

John Michel's curator insight, February 16, 2014 7:36 PM

Just as leadership style can be redefined and perfected, so can -- and should -- a company's culture. As president of a franchisee system, I know it's important to constantly innovate and improve to keep all team members on board, and here are the tips I'm applying to make 2014 a banner year.

What's Love Got To Do With It? Leadership, Trust & Emotional Capital

What's Love Got To Do With It? Leadership, Trust & Emotional Capital | "employee engagement enhancement" | Scoop.it

Do you remember the classic Tina Turner song? So how much love is in your organization and should you care? Are you thinking “Seriously? You’re going to talk about love? How does this help me raise the ROI and build my business?” Well, new neuroscience research shows love has a LOT to do with success in business because it’s a driver of trust – which is a driver of loyalty. Dr. Paul Zak studies a neurohormone called Oxytocin and its effects on business, decisions, and relationships. Oxytocin is released when we feel love, show compassion, and express appreciation. Zak discovered that when there’s more of this chemical in our blood, we also feel more trust towards others. When trust is higher there is higher productivity, employee retention, engagement and purpose driven work.

Indeed, honesty and loyalty to your followers is probably just as, if not the originator of, their honesty and loyalty to you.

 

A shame that sociopaths and other people with pathological perspectives, attitudes and beliefs can't, won't and/or don't get these concepts at everyone's expense, including their own, in the long term (which becomes the short term, inevitably).

 

If only we could diagnose ignorance as a mental illness in addition to the pathological stuff.

 

Think about it.

Giving Meaning to the Work: It’s How You REALLY Engage Millennials

Giving Meaning to the Work: It’s How You REALLY Engage Millennials | "employee engagement enhancement" | Scoop.it

This is a fact: In 10 years, Millennials (also known as Gen Y) will make up 75 percent of the global workforce.

 

With that reality staring us in the face, it’s time to stop marginalizing Millennials and their needs in the workplace. We can no longer say, “They were coddled too much as kids and now expect recognition for every little achievement” as we dismiss the need for feedback on their work.

Besides, this is all a fallacy anyway. Millennials aren’t asking for praise and appreciation at every turn. They are saying, “I’m new in this job and in the workplace in general. I don’t know if what I’m doing are the right things to do. I need you to give me more feedback on the value and importance of what I do.”

 They want impact and meaning

Let’s be honest — weren’t all of us (regardless of generation) in need of the same thing when we were new in the workplace? That said, Millennials are asking for more than their elders – but not what you think.

How the Best Places to Work are Nailing Employee Engagement

How the Best Places to Work are Nailing Employee Engagement | "employee engagement enhancement" | Scoop.it

So what engages employees? The drivers differ region to region and person to person, but employee engagement is largely about social connections happening in organizations and aligning work experiences with employees’ cultural needs.

 

What works varies by industry, location, company size, and how much money and resources the organization has to invest into developing its culture, and its value and philosophy around employee engagement.

 

But there are factors that all highly engaged workplaces have in common.

 

How do the best places to work succeed at employee engagement?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 4, 2014 6:51 PM

When Robert Greenleaf first proposed servant-leadership, it was at a time when insitutions began to play an increasing role. They began to replace some of the communal ways things had been done. We are at a new intersection in time as the digital world emerges. Servant-leadership would be an important fit with its focus on mindfulness, being present, and faith in humans and something beyond us.

Sustainable leadership comes from the heart as much as the head.

Amy Melendez's curator insight, March 11, 2014 4:01 PM

from the article:  "There is a better way. It’s called Servant Leadership, and it can be applied in workplaces and homes. It is an act of faith, best defined by coming alongside others, leading by example and helping the people around and under you. Using it allows you to go further in all areas of life, rather than pursuing positional leadership that dominates and dictates your employees."

Vickie Barnachea's curator insight, February 13, 2014 7:05 PM

Members or employers who does not perform accordingly must be met and told privately about his/her shortcomings and asked the whys and reasons for such performance. Leaders must be understanding and give a few chances to a certain point for them to improved. It has to be pointed out that there will be just one warning and then subsequent numbers of meetings on the same problem will be officially recorded as infractions as per rules of the company or organization. Leaders must dig into the real reasons behind the poor performance to be able to help each member in improving themselves either by mentoring or be guided by a peer in his work until he/she can perform well.
