How do HPT practitioners help teams open up to new talents that they may need to meet changing organizational objectives? A growth mindset can help individual employees and teams make greater contributions as the organization itself becomes a better place to learn and perform. Join us for an interactive and fast-paced webinar where we will share the early results of our evolving work on team mindsets. We’ll introduce what a growth mindset is and how it affects individuals and teams. We’ll let you reflect on your own mindset. Then we will explore a team growth mindset and our current work to measure it. We will provide several strategies to enhance a team growth mindset in your organization. We are also interested in hearing your feedback about our work, how to improve it, and how it may apply in your own organizations.
