About the course
Learn how to cultivate a growth mindset organization that encourages candor, frequent feedback, appropriate risk-taking, and intelligent failure.
One distinguishing factor of high performing teams and organizations is psychological safety. Research by Harvard’s Amy Edmondson shows that when employees feel safe to voice an opinion, disagree, ask a question, take a risk, or admit a mistake, without fear of retribution or embarrassment, productivity increases, creativity thrives, and employee investment soars.
Creating such a workplace that feels safe for candor and even failure necessitates leading with what Stanford psychologist, Carol Dweck, calls a growth mindset. In this course, leaders will learn how to cultivate a growth-mindset organization that encourages candor, frequent feedback, appropriate risk-taking, and intelligent failure.
After assessing the current climate of psychological safety in your team or organization, you will determine areas for improvement and learn proven practices that will promote psychologically safe conversations in which employees can more aptly speak up, receive feedback, and develop their skills, and abilities to a greater potential.
