  2. How can I improve my relationships at work so they are more inspiring?

Growth Mindset

A growth mindset is a belief that your abilities can be developed over time by learning to embrace failures, facing difficult situations with resilience, and seeking help along the way.

To build a growth mindset, remind yourself that your failure is not a sign of incompetence, Rather, it’s an opportunity to learn what not to do.

How often do you search Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, or Instagram before meeting someone new? All the time, right? Everyone is checking you out online, too.

The “first” impression of you isn’t when you actually make contact, it’s when someone pulls up your profiles and makes snap judgments based on what they see. From there, once you actually do meet, they’ll likely be looking for signs to confirm the assumptions they’ve made about you. The same thing happens in your career, especially from your LinkedIn profile

Try practicing these three things:

  • Don’t blame circumstances for your mistakes. Instead, use them as an opportunity to learn about yourself.
  • When faced with an unfamiliar situation, don’t run or hide. Try to tackle it to the best of your abilities.
  • Don’t be hesitant about asking for help. No one comes with all the expertise, so ask for help when you need it. The best way through an unknown situation is going through it, rather than avoiding it or feeling let down by it.

Take two or three mundane office or household items (like a sock, a paperclip, or a pencil) and brainstorm as many alternative uses as you can for each. For example, a sock can be used as a washcloth, a paperclip as a keychain, and a pencil as a hair curler.
