How a Team Member’s Mindset Can Lead Innovation

How one’s mindset goes a long way both internally and externally at an organization.

Why learn about team member’s mindsets?

Any of us have been faced with team member who has a fixed mindset. You can see it in how they react to mistakes disproportionately or when they shrug it off and don’t own up to what happened. Those kinds of behaviors stem from a fixed mindset. If you want to create an innovative team, it’s important to look at these behaviors to learn about the team member’s mindset.

What is a fixed mindset?

Basically, people with fixed mindsets see that their abilities are static and that much of who they are is set in stone. Alternatively, those with a growth mindset see anything as possible with learning and effort.

Why encourage employees to embrace a growth mindset?

We need our team to take chances, make mistakes, and persevere to achieve innovation. This is how new products and processes are developed. So we need to help them gain a new perception of their abilities.

There’s extensive research on mindsets and a myriad of techniques to help people learn and, more importantly, unlearn patterns that make them stay put and avoid growth.
