Do you have the right talent at your table?

 

The festive season is here. Halloween and Melbourne Cup are behind us and we are heading full speed into year-end frivolities. Our thoughts turn to celebrations at work and at home.

People whose achievements and contributions we want to acknowledge and the people who will carry our businesses onwards and upwards into the new year?

How Leaders And Organisations Can Flourish By Changing Mindsets

 

The notion that our success in life is linked to how we think is not a new concept. Lately I’ve been pondering Carol Dweck’s work on a Growth versus Fixed Mindset, as it relates to our ability to respond to and embrace the future of work in our roles, as both employees and leaders of people.
