Team challenge


“Everything in life starts with your mindset first and your actions second. Your actions follow your thoughts, your beliefs and ideas. To make a shift, to free your energy: start with getting your mind right, and then, take action.” – Sylvester Mcnutt

Psychological background on Mindset as a team challenge

Our mindset is determined by experiences early in life and in turn determines our feelings, thoughts and actions. It can be described as people’s self-theories about their abilities and intelligence. Carol Dweck, Professor of Psychology at Stanford University, established two types of mindsets, the fixed mindset and the growth mindset.
  • People with a fixed mindset believe that qualities such as intelligence and talent are inborn and unchangeable. Therefore, they believe that they can’t accomplish something that is out of the reach of their knowledge and abilities.
  • On the other hand, those with a growth mindset believe that these abilities can be learned and developed to solve even difficult problems. A growth mindset can therefore contribute to greater achievement and increased effort.
