The Outward Mindset

The Outward Mindset

The outward mindset is a way of looking at the world. It involves seeing beyond yourself and making others feel valued. An outward mindset focuses on others, on what is important to all stakeholders: our employees, customers, manager, family members.

An outward mindset means that we genuinely see (and hear and listen to) others. We evaluate their needs, objectives, and challenges rather than focusing on our own. When we do this, options occur to us that never could have before (e.g., the formula story) and we can focus on the collective result we desire.

An inward mindset is focused on self-benefit and self-concern—our individual self-interest or if we are operating in a larger organization, our individual team, or our division.

The framework for working with the Outward Mindset goes by the acronym SAM—See others, Adjust efforts and Measure impact.

Adopt an outward mindset even when others don’t. Rather than complain, we can make the move we are waiting for the other person to make—we can act the way we want the other person to act.
