Shifting Mindset

The powerful yet underused strategy to promote positive change, drive innovation and just get along

Change is hard, and the barriers to success are subtle and often hidden. Yet some individuals and organizations do it routinely, while others struggle. Trainers and talent managers have a role to play in the complex dynamics of change, as expert guides. Guides who shape not only skills and behaviors, but mindset—the complex web of assumptions and beliefs that influence our decisions.

In this interactive session, you will explore a rigorous research-based approach to mindset. One that provides a strategy for facilitating innovation and change, and a lens for evaluating the impact of training and development more broadly.

You will learn:

  • To use mindset to gauge how change ready your organization and people really are.
  • Ways to shift mindset to optimize innovation and dramatically increase value creation.
  • How mindset fosters conflict and how to use mindset to diffuse it.
  • Why an understanding of mindset is essential to highly effective leadership.

Come prepared to rethink how you think.

You will leave with a powerful new set of tools.

Presenter Dennis Stauffer is the founder of Innovator Mindset and an independent researcher into the personal dynamics of innovation. His groundbreaking work was the subject of three peer-reviewed articles recently published in series in the International Journal of Innovation Science. Dennis is the co-developer of an instrument for measuring and developing the capacity to innovate. His insights are based on work done with assistance from the Kauffman Foundation and the U.S. National Science Foundation.
