"[...] fabulous, helpful, thought-provoking, growth-oriented training. I benefited more from this experience than I have from whole classes on brain development, entire textbooks on brain research and multiday educational conferences. I know I am a better teacher for this morning’s experience. Heartfelt thanks."
- Michele, Public School Teacher & Thought Leader, Kansas City MO
What Growth Mindset training is NOT about
I've seen it time and time again - from nonprofits to schools to tech organizations- so much focus is on client/student needs that they completely skip over those people in charge of delivering whatever that service is.
That approach can often lead to staff burn-out, resentment, even hostility towards administration. That type of resentment creates a tense environment and makes it hard for staff to want to serve the organization. It creates in-group/out-group mentality.
Many organizations are also intensely focused on satisfying 'customer' demands - which are about quick fixes, the latest trends and buzz words. These hypes are often fuelled by unconscious triggers driven by the primitive parts of their own systems. Organizations then try to satisfy these primitive drives, rather than ask whether it is even in the clients' highest interest to do this.
The other option? Organizational leaders can take the time to truly understand the deepest roots that drive these frenzied masses - and to use slow, intelligent reflection to help staff become agents who can resist the short term manias of buzz words and trends and nurture the conditions that those customers truly need to access their most evolved systems, freedom and agency.
"I learned how to infuse lessons with conversations about emotion, vulnerability and failure. Stefanie knows what she is talking about – and backed it all up with evidence."
– Jenna De Bruin, Leading-Edge Educator, Chicago IL
