Mindset for Leaders

Mindset is a critical element of a leader’s success. Skill building only translates to behavior change when filtered through a healthy mindset. It determines the way we think about, approach, and interpret situations in the workplace and directly influences the quality of our actions, decisions, and relationships. Cultivating a mindset that enhances effectiveness and enables success must be a priority for any genuine leader. This course enables participants to examine the leadership mindset as a concept (e.g., fixed vs. growth), as a manifestation of their personal values and experiences, and as the product of organizational culture. Participants also consider the impact of their mindset as a leader on individuals and the organization, and they conclude by crafting a galvanizing, powerful, and personal mindset statement.
