Client story: The transformational power of a growth mindset

My client, a prominent German DAX company, aimed to improve their feedback culture, transitioning from formal annual meetings to agile feedback throughout the year, quick, specific, and peer-to-peer. However, their noble intentions led to unintended consequences: Instead of fostering shared learning, misunderstandings and conflicts arose.

What to do? A team in the innovation department hired me for support and over the course of several months we focused on developing the mindset required for the new feedback culture: What characterizes a growth mindset and how can we cultivate it within ourselves and others? How do we overcome our fear of failure and embrace challenges as opportunities for growth?

Following our months-long mindset project, transforming the feedback culture was effortless. The client team now viewed feedback as a true gift accelerating their learning and development. As one team member said, „Giving and receiving feedback became a habit like brushing your teeths“.

I’m delighted to see that participants of this project have evolved into enthusiastic advocates of the growth mindset concept continuing to lead workshops on this impactful topic within their company to this day.
