Fixed vs. Growth: The Two Basic Mindsets That Shape Our Lives

Fixed vs. Growth: The Two Basic Mindsets That Shape Our Lives | Leadership Values | Scoop.it

How to fine-tune the internal monologue that scores every aspect of our lives, from leadership to love.



“If you imagine less, less will be what you undoubtedly deserve,” Debbie Millman counseled in one of the best commencement speeches ever given, urging: “Do what you love, and don’t stop until you get what you love. Work as hard as you can, imagine immensities…” Far from Pollyanna platitude, this advice actually reflects what modern psychology knows about how belief systems about our own abilities and potential fuel our behavior and predict our success. Much of that understanding stems from the work of Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck, synthesized in her remarkably insightfulMindset: The New Psychology of Success (public library), which explores the power of our beliefs, both conscious and unconscious, and how changing even the simplest of them can have profound impact on nearly every aspect of our lives.

The most critical factor in business success? Culture.

The most critical factor in business success? Culture. | Leadership Values | Scoop.it
What’s the condition of your organization’s culture? Every organization has one. From a small business to a multi-national, it’s got a culture. From a team to a department to a division to a region to a country, it’s got a culture. Usually the culture of a business happens by default – not by design. Culture […]

Getting Fairness Right

Getting Fairness Right | Leadership Values | Scoop.it
Fairness isn’t just nice, it’s important

You know that you’re supposed to be fair. What you may not know is how important it is. As Kathryn Dekas, a PhD member of the People Operations team at Google observes:

“Fairness perceptions are very powerful. They affect how people think about almost everything at work, but especially how valued they think they are, how satisfied they are with their jobs, how much they trust their supervisors and their commitment to the organization.”

When people think you’re treating them fairly, they will work harder. They will pitch in to help get the job done. They’re likely to have better morale and take more initiative. Bob Sutton describes what happens when they don’t think you’re fair:

“Numerous studies show that when people feel as if they’re getting a raw deal from their boss or employer, they give less in return; bad behavior runs rampant; and effort, efficiency, quality, civility, and other excellence metrics plummet.”

 Make Habits, Not Rules

What can we do to change the behaviors of people in a way that would be good for them and for society?

Rules
The primary approach used by governments is threatening people with rules and punishments. If you don't pay your taxes, you are punished. If you drive too fast, you are punished. If you sell or use an illegal substance, you are punished. Besides rules and punishments (augmented with some taxation and propaganda), there seems to be little variety in the ways governments attempt to influence the behaviors of their citizens.
 
The primary approach followed by businesses is the promise of rewards. If you increase sales by factor X, you get a bonus. If you get better performance ratings than your peers, you get a promotion. If you do what you're asked, you can get in line for a raise. Again, the variety of approaches to improve behaviors among employees in most organizations seems rather poor. It is all about carrots and sticks. Mostly carrots, but also some sticks.

What should we do instead?

How do we get people to exercise and eat healthier foods?
How do we get creative workers to follow safety procedures?
How do we convince anyone to be on time, follow a checklist, or be more supportive and appreciative toward their peers?

Efficienarta's insight:
Leaders should develop a point of view on how behavoural economics  (Nudge etc.) can contribute to improving performance in their organisations (and reducing the need for some of the traditional bureaucracy).

We All Make the Choice to Transact or Transform 

We All Make the Choice to Transact or Transform  | Leadership Values | Scoop.it
As leaders, managers, and contributors, we make the choice every day to transact or transform in our encounters with colleagues and customers.  Many opt for the former, exhibiting the bare minimum amount of energy to reasonably fulfill their obligation to the other party. These people transact. In most cases their firms perpetuate a transactional culture that flows from the corporate offices out into the customer environment.

You see the transaction effect in the big, impersonal retail stores where cashiers seem to be trained to not make eye contact and almost never smile. You experience it at the airline counter and your doctor’s office and in so many other encounters in your daily life. These organizations and those in them who run the business simply don’t care.
