The Inward Mindset

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.

When people focus on themselves rather than on their impact, lots of activity and effort get wasted on the wrong things. Collaboration suffers, innovation is limited and employees disengage due to the boredom inherent with inward-mindset thinking and working.

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.

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.
