What better way to ring in 2021 than with a new perspective on your own potential? Growth mindset can help unlock skills you once thought were unattainable.

A new year means new resolutions. New chances to learn the skills that have eluded you. New opportunities to stretch, improve, and grow.

We only thought it fitting to assist in that goal with a compilation of growth-mindset blog posts. Below you’ll find our five favorite blog posts from the past year, all revolving around improving, not proving, yourself.

Here’s to a 2021 full of new opportunities and milestones.

1. What Exactly Is a Growth Mindset, Anyway?

What better way to start 2021 than with a full, clear understanding of growth mindset itself? Surprisingly, it doesn’t refer to business growth or unlimited personal potential. Growth mindset is all about perspective and attitude.

2. Do You Have a Culture of Development or a Culture of Genius?

When you look at your organization’s culture, do you see people competing to be the smartest in the room? Or do you see them cooperating and trying to outperform their past selves? Growth mindset can offer a lightning-quick diagnosis.

3. Why Growth Mindset Is Crucial to Inclusion

If we believe people will always be who they’ve always been, what incentive do we have to seriously consider what they have to say? On the other hand, by keeping an open mind that people can change, we open ourselves up to listening and considering new points of view.

4. How to Give Feedback With a Growth-Mindset Approach

By the same token, if we see ourselves as capable of improvement, we will have an easier time listening to other people’s perspectives. Their critiques and suggestions won’t crush us just because it compromises the self-image we may hold. Instead, we’ll use it to grow.

5. A Peek Inside Microsoft’s Growth-Mindset Evolution

If you want a role model for how to begin your growth-mindset journey, look no further than Microsoft. For the past several years, the tech giant has worked closely with NLI to execute on CEO Satya Nadella’s vision to become a company of learn-it-alls, not know-it-alls.

Whatever your goals in 2021, cultivating a growth mindset is the ideal first step. It will help you see challenges as opportunities, not threats. And it will help people on your team recognize that with a bit more persistence and effort, skills they thought unattainable are well within reach.
