MAY VIRTUAL WEBINAR: FOSTERING A GROWTH MINDSET IN YOUR TEAM
Time & Location
About the Event
Link to view webinar will be available through May 21, 2020.
Presented by: Alice Ferris
One factor may have been the mindsets of the people involved. In her book, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, Stanford University professor, Dr. Carol Dweck, defines a growth mindset as a belief that talents can be developed through hard work, good strategies, and input from others. Those with fixed mindsets believe their talents cannot be changed. Teams that promote and foster a growth mindset tend to be more collaborative, empowered and committed--all factors we need in an effective development program. In this session, we'll review Dr. Dweck's research and other findings building upon her work, translate how a growth mindset can help build a more effective fundraising team, and provide real-world examples of how mindset can make the difference between a successful professional and a staff person on their way out.
Learning objectives: - Understand the markers of a growth mindset versus a fixed mindset
- Identify strategies to encourage growth mindsets in your team
- Identify ways to help fixed and growth mindset people work together
