1) DISCUSSION POST
Week 7 Discussion
Read the article, How Companies Can Profit from a “Growth Mindset,” which outlines a number of benefits for encouraging employees and team members to grow and develop their skills, talents, and competencies.
Now imagine you’re a new manager in a company that adheres to a more fixed mindset approach — in other words, that a person’s attributes and abilities are inherently fixed and unchanging. During your own professional development through the years, you have worked to develop a growth mindset for yourself. Now that you’re in a leadership role, how could you go about creating change within your new department and encouraging your company to foster a growth mindset?
For instance, how would you deliver feedback to your team members that would promote a growth mindset?
Note – You can learn more about mindset and growth mindset in Chapter 7 of the webtext. Here’s a short YouTube video to also help you learn the concepts: Growth Mindset vs. Fixed Mindset.
To receive full credit, remember to write 2 posts in the discussion: one original and a response to another student. Your original should be at least 7 sentences, and your reply should be 4 sentences.
2) PEER REVIEW #1 ( JONATHAN)
If I were to manage a team of employees with a fixed mind set I would definitely want to change their way of thinking. This would be by outlining ways to have a growth mindset. By doing so I would have team meetings that would focus on success and achievements in the work place. I would constantly motivate them, let them know change Is possible you just have to keep a positive outlook on the outcome. There are ways to overcome challenges. Having self efficacy would help those employees with a fixed mindset. Setting small goals and achieving them will build a growth mindset. As a manager I would surround employees around those who lack a growth mindset around those who do not. This can help to improve and also some what motivate the ones who lack confidence in being able to think positive in order to grow.
3) PEER REVIEW #2(SENGPHET)
As the manager I would provide new training to my employees. Show them other company’s that have achieved their highest goals through training,dedication and hard work. I would set goals that are attainable for my team and provide support for them each step of the way. Through the new training I hope to show them that managers are not born managers, that anyone can be one including them with the right education, training and mindset. I would share with my team how I was able to shift from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset. I think that sharing with my team my personal growth as well as my trials will help the growth of the whole company. I think that as we are transitioning it’s important to provide feedback in a positive and constructive way. Even when we stumble, as long as we get back up and keep pushing to our goal we are still transitioning.
