Why Would You Want to Offer this Course if You Are a Trainer?

Growth mindset is a topic that fits well as part of a variety of skill areas.

For example, it is connected to adaptability and resilience. So, if a company wants to help their staff deal with change, you can offer a module on growth mindset.

Growth mindset is also a topic that can help develop more empathetic and committed leaders. So, you could offer a workshop on growth mindset as part of a course that also includes Coaching Skills for Managers and Delegation Skills.

Likewise, having a growth mindset can have a positive impact on mental well-being, so it can be offered as part of a teaching portfolio that also includes topics such as Stress Management and Self-Confidence Building.

So, as you can see, growth mindset is a very useful and very relevant workshop topic that you can teach and adapt to suit different audiences.

Benefits of Developing a Growth Mindset in Life and in the Workplace

The concept of a growth mindset was first developed by Prof Carol Dweck, during her research in the field of educational psychology. She recognized that some individuals had what she called a growth mindset, as opposed to a fixed mindset.

A lot more research has been done since, but the main idea is that individuals with a growth mindset tend to believe that, with effort and time, people can develop their skills and build on their talents.

Conversely, those who hold a fixed mindset tend to believe that people are born with a set of talents and skills and these cannot be improved on. So, no amount of effort can change your skills.

Individuals who have a growth mindset do NOT deny that we are all born with different talents. However, they strongly believe in the power of education and self-development and in the fact that effort and hard work can help us develop new skills.

If you have a growth mindset, you see opportunities for learning everywhere in life. Even setbacks, failures and negative feedback for you are opportunities for learning and growing.

As a result, if you have a growth mindset, you will tend to be more resilient, more open to feedback, less afraid of failure and excited by challenges.

On the contrary, individuals who hold a fixed mindset tend to take feedback more personally and to be less open to new challenges, because they tend to fear failure more.

Since they tend to believe that people are either talented or intelligent or they are not, they tend to see every failure and setback as something that defines them, rather than as learning opportunities.

There is a continuum between the two extremes of a completely fixed and a completely growth mindset. Most people tend to be somewhere in between. In addition, you can have different mindsets in different areas of your life, depending on your experiences and attitudes in each area.

So, why can individuals benefit from receiving training on a growth mindset? And why should a company foster a growth mindset in their managers and employees?

As we have seen, individuals with a growth mindset tend to be more resilient and to strongly believe in the value of education.

So, a company would want to provide employees and leaders with growth mindset training to create a workforce that is:

  • Resilient
  • Able to cope with changes
  • Better at managing conflict
  • More creative
  • Better at problem-solving
  • Empathetic
  • More motivated and engaged
  • Open to feedback
  • Less prone to stress
  • More productive

Likewise, acquiring a growth mindset can be helpful in all other areas of life.

These growth mindset training course materials are designed to help you, as a trainer, coach or HR manager, provide individuals with the support they need to develop their growth mindset.
