At Microsoft, Andrea is working with a community of 16,000+ managers across 100+ countries, and helping them develop coach-like behaviours.

If you are spending a majority of your time as a manager on solving other people’s problems and challenges, then this episode is for you!
Unfortunately, most of the teams tend to operate with a fixed mindset, where failures are devastating and challenges are to be avoided. There is a solution to it: The Growth Midset. A way of leaving, where failure does not define who we are and instead, it’s embraced as an opportunity to learn and grow.

In this episode, Adrea shared with me very practical ways that will help every manager bring the Growth Mindset into their teams.

I cannot stress enough how important it is to develop the Growth Mindset. It’s a gift that keeps on giving, so tune in and learn with me how to develop it!
