IMI Advant-edge: Why Fostering a Growth Mindset in Organisations Matters

IMI Advant-edge: Why Fostering a Growth Mindset in Organisations Matters


In the first IMI Advant-edge series in Cork, IMI faculty member Philip Matthews will explore the growth mindset with specific research from Stanford Psychologist, Carol Dweck, and will identify two distinct mindsets in people called Fixed and Growth. Whilst no individual is entirely one or the other, this has profound consequences for people and organisations.

During this session we will ask the question, does your organisation have a growth mindset culture of development or a fixed mindset culture of genius?
