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

Fixed vs. Growth: The Two Basic Mindsets That Shape Our Lives ~ Brain Pickings | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

by Maria Popova

 

"One of the most basic beliefs we carry about ourselves, Dweck found in her research, has to do with how we view and inhabit what we consider to be our personality. A “fixed mindset” assumes that our character, intelligence, and creative ability are static givens which we can’t change in any meaningful way, and success is the affirmation of that inherent intelligence, an assessment of how those givens measure up against an equally fixed standard; striving for success and avoiding failure at all costs become a way of maintaining the sense of being smart or skilled. A “growth mindset,” on the other hand, thrives on challenge and sees failure not as evidence of unintelligence but as a heartening springboard for growth and for stretching our existing abilities. Out of these two mindsets, which we manifest from a very early age, springs a great deal of our behavior, our relationship with success and failure in both professional and personal contexts, and ultimately our capacity for happiness."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

An excellent essay/review that summarizes and praises Carol Dweck's book Mindset. If you haven't read the book, this is a great way to find out quickly what all the excitement is about.

The Most Important Leadership Behavior That Builds Trust (and 3 ways to demonstrate it)

What does it mean for a leader to act with integrity?

donhornsby's curator insight, August 29, 9:33 AM

(From the article): The cost of not acting with integrity is immense and recovering from a breach of integrity is perhaps one of the most difficult challenges a leader can face. That’s because people perceive integrity to be about who you are as a leader, not just what you do. One only needs to look at today’s news headlines to see the devastating effects of these failures. Politicians resigning from office, corporate leaders arrested for wrongdoing, celebrities losing millions from lost endorsements, and spiritual leaders being disgraced are all results from not acting with a sense of integrity.

Lisa McCarthy's curator insight, September 22, 5:24 AM

An “insightfully aware” leader has a profound and clear understanding of his or her purpose and the reasons behind it. Self-awareness of values helps leaders to reflect upon their emotions, goals, needs and motives. Individuals who are able to identify and articulate their values will generate meaningful insights about how they see themselves, the circumstances they face, the behaviours they display, and their potential reactions to specific situations. Comprehending their values (personal, work and organisational) enables leaders to know and accomplish what they believe is important. 

Steve Bax's curator insight, September 22, 10:28 AM

Very good article scooped by Kenneth Mikkelsen. Well worth reading about the 'Values Types and the Personal Values System' which shows the 12 Values Types identified too.

Embrace Different Perspectives


"We'll never stop employing people of different generations here. Although it's a challenge to work together, meshing new ideas, different energy levels, and time-tested experience, I'm a firm believer that evolution only happens by getting outside the comfort zone. There's great value in the diversity of our employees. They provide insight on our wide range of customers, giving us a well-balanced perspective."

The value of a life is always measured by how much of it is given away. At the end of one’s life, we celebrate the selflessness not the title, status, or accumulation. Selflessness is what makes our lives truly bigger than ourselves. If your leadership is all about you, it ends when you come to an end but if your leadership isn’t all about you, it will live beyond you.

Most People Don’t Want to Be Managers

Most People Don’t Want to Be Managers | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

Most American workers aren’t interested in becoming managers. At least, that’s what a new CareerBuilder survey seems to suggest.

Of the thousands surveyed, only about one-third of workers (34%) said they aspire to leadership positions – and just 7% strive for C-level management (the rest said they aspire to middle-management or department-head roles). Broken down further, the results show that more men (40%) hope to have a leadership role than women (29%), and that African Americans (39%) and LGBT workers (44%) are more likely to want to climb the corporate ladder than the national average.
