Stella Lincoln

Why You Should Spread Growth Mindset among Your Employees
Silvia Woolard
Carol Dweck, a Stanford Psychology Professor, wrote a book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success in which she discusses the concept of the fixed versus the growth mindset. Applying this concept is useful within a business context. Employees with a fixed mindset believe they have a pre-determined capacity that they cannot exceed. Others with a growth mindset firmly believe they can go beyond their current limitations.

How to Use Non-Training Development in Your Personal Growth
Halelly Azulay
The days of putting the responsibility of your development in your employer’s hands are over. We are moving into a world where many will partake of the new “gig economy”, where artificial intelligence will render some of our jobs historical relics, and where jobs will be more like “tours of duty” and short project-based partnerships. Therefore, all employees must become stewards of their own “start-ups” (i.e. careers) and cultivators of their “product” (i.e. their skillset and value-proposition to an employer) and personal brand.

What You Need to Know About Manager Credibility
Dory Wilson
In my role as a talent development professional, I have been helping managers become better leaders for longer than I like to admit (think decades, not years). When I facilitate leadership sessions, participants are often surprised to learn that I believe credibility is the most essential trait of a leader. I am not surprised to learn that they often don’t agree with me, or that our perception of credibility and the day-to-day interpretation of it, are vastly different.

9 Ways to Encourage Employees Critical Thinking in the Workplace
Eva Wislow
Business executives and company managers tend to talk about the importance of critical thinking but they rarely ever try to encourage it in their own teams. As the matter of fact, most of them don’t even know how to describe and explain this phrase. By definition, critical thinking is the ability and willingness to assess claims and make objective judgments on the basis of well-supported reasons.
