6 Ways To Encourage A Growth Mindset In Your Team

We want the best people we can get on our teams. This means people who are self-starters, continuous learners, and are ready to go. But what if you’ve come across a team member who doesn’t have that motivation? Can you motivate them to change their mindset from a limited mindset to a growth mindset?

You can! 

A team member who is stuck currently doesn’t have to be stuck forever. Just think back to some of your missteps. You’ve had your ups and downs as you’ve taken this journey. They will too!

You have the joy and pleasure of being there, next to them, helping them grow. You are able to encourage a growth mindset in your people. 

How cool is that? 

The Number ONE Thing That Will Build Confidence

Imagine walking into an organization and you know nothing about the skills you need, methods that work, or you lack the talent needed to thrive. You’d be freaking out.

You may wonder how you could accomplish all that needs to be done. You may ponder why someone would put you into the situation you’re sitting in. 

More than anything, you’d lack the confidence to get the job done.

So, my question to you is:

What could build your confidence to tackle situations such as this?

The Number ONE Thing That Will Build Confidence

What if I told you there’s one thing that will build or give you confidence? Something you can work on yourself? Something so simple it can be mind-bending?

There is one thing you can do to build confidence, even in challenging situations where you’re tossed into it with little to no knowledge of the business.

5 Decision-Making Strategies All Leaders Should Use

While leadership is influence, there’s more to leadership than influencing others. One of the major aspects of leadership is decision-making. You have to be willing to make decisions and stick to your choices.

Sometimes, making those decisions can be challenging. There’s so much to consider, the possibilities are endless, and your decision could change the course of your organization, life, or the people you lead.

You have to make wise decisions.

It’s a good thing you’re reading this! We’re going to share about it. In this article, you’ll discover 5 decision-making strategies that will help you make the best decisions you can.

5 Decision-Making Strategies All Leaders Should Use

1. Rational decision making:

Rational decision-making is the strategy that uses analysis, data collection, and evaluation of alternatives. It’s looking at everything happening with objectivity.

Developing The Ability To Endure Leadership Stress

Leading requires endurance. You have to have the ability to continue through the pain, heartache, and frustrations to get yourself through to the other side. The side of milk and honey. The side of feeling accomplished.

But you can’t do that if you don’t have endurance.

I think I know a thing or two about endurance. Having run multiple half and full marathons along with a handful of 25Ks, I’ve had to push my body and mind to the breaking point to cross the finish line.

Just like we have to do as leaders. 

We have to push ourselves beyond what we think is possible. However, too many times, we do this with little to no preparation. We think it’s okay to hop into something new without building up our minds or bodies. Then, we feel like failures when we cannot accomplish what we set out to do.

6 Thoughts On Building High-Performing Teams

Building a high-performing team isn’t as simple as it seems. The ingredients are difficult to understand. Even harder to understand is how everything works together.

Just think about Moneyball. It was once thought that high-performing sports teams had the best players on the team. Billy Beane proved this theory wrong.

Rather than finding the star players, Beane looked for undervalued players. These players’ statistics had a high on-base percentage that was overlooked in traditional scouting methods. 

We do the same in building our organizational teams. We look for team members who are the most talented, can seal the deal, and more.

But what if we’re looking at talent wrong? What if there’s a better way to build a team? I believe we need to rethink the current paradigm of talent and shift to another way of scouting for talent.
