In this talk, researcher Heidi Grant Halvorson explores the mindsets needed to ensure personal growth. With the help of multiple studies, she’s found that constantly trying to be good is actually making us worse than we could be. Instead, she suggests adopting a “get better” or growth mindset when facing a challenge. Not only will this help you learn more at work, but you’ll actually enjoy the process of a task or project more, rather than just focusing on the end result. When we embrace a Get Better mindset, we embrace risk and are less afraid of failure, which is key to personal development.
