Empowering Everyone To Reach Their Full Potential And Create A Better World

What Is Growth Minded Leadership?

Growth Minded Leadership is a new leadership model based on a growth mindset. It ensures maximum performance and results in an ever-changing, disruptive, and turbulent world. 

Its key principle is empowering leaders to create self actualized workplaces. Where everyone, including the organization, grows to their highest potential. Growth becomes the cornerstone of all actions and decisions. It is through this principle that everyone achieves unprecedented levels of performance, productivity, and fulfilment. 

It also seeks to harness the collective power of teams. It seeks to foster teamwork and collaboration to allow everyone to rise to new levels of growth and success.

How Is Growth Minded Leadership Different From Traditional Leadership Practices?

Growth Minded Leadership differs from other leadership models, which primarily focus on improving relationships. The diagram below outlines the four quadrants that leadership models fall into.

Traditional leadership models focus on relationships and self-improvement. Traditional models require leaders to change their behaviors, so they can improve their relationships. This then theoretically should flow onto improved employee performance. It is a very indirect and complicated way to increase performance and results.

Growth Minded Leadership uses a completely different type of approach. It focuses on leaders getting results through the process of self actualization. There is a big difference between self-improvement and self actualization. Self-improvement is akin to focusing on a small part of a painting. Only a small part of the picture is known, not the complete painting itself. It does not seek to identify anyones full potential.

Self actualization is about identifying and maximizing the leaders full potential as well as that of the team the organization. It is about becoming the sum total of who you really are. When this happens, extraordinary performance and results naturally follow. When you combine this with the power of team intelligence, anything is possible.

Growth Minded Leadership also differs in that its aim is not to change you, but to bring out the best in you. It does this by using a unique assessment tool called the Authentic Self Assessment Profile. This profile accurately identifies your purpose, unique strengths and self - sabotaging behaviors.

Growth Minded Leadership does not seek to change you, but focuses on removing the blocks that prevent you from realizing your full potential. The key to expressing your full potential is about clearing your self - sabotaging behaviors. This then allows for the natural expression of who you really are to reveal itself. 

The Benefits Of Growth Minded Leadership

Growth Minded Leadership gets to the heart of what most employees want. To do work that is meaningful, purposeful  and rewarding. Covid has certainly highlighted this with mass exoduses occurring in organizations. It also ensures high levels of success, which translates into higher remuneration.

Employees become fully engaged, leading to greater levels of motivation and self-directed performance. This makes the usual problem of managing others much less time-consuming. Leaders have more time to focus on strategic endeavors instead of managing problems. Employees become empowered to take ownership and solve problems.

Decision-making at the grassroots level becomes easier and more simplified. This is because growth guides all decisions. It makes decision-making simple and easy for everyone. This is because growth becomes the determining factor behind all decisions. This makes it easy to empower all members of the organization to make decisions and implement ideas. It is not uncommon for organizations to implement systems and processes that negatively affect sales, profits and customers.

Dan and Chip Heath referred to this concept of simplicity in their book Made To Stick. They cited how East West Airline’s success came from company’s simple mission statement. The Low-Fare Airline. In one example, an employee came up with a suggestion of offering in flight food. It was quickly rejected because it did not meet the company’s aim of keeping prices low. Similarly, in growth minded environments, if someone wanted to develop a system, they would have to prove how it grows its people, the organization and its customers. Growth becomes the cornerstone of all strategic decisions. 

Growth - minded environments also create a space for creativity and innovation where people feel motivated and excited to come to work. Stressed - filled work environments are transformed into fun and engaging places to be. No longer are people part of toxic and controlling environments.

Organizations that use Growth Minded Leadership will become employers of choice. People will be eager to work in these creative, successful and collaborative environments.
