How do you perceive failure? Your answer to this crucial question determines if you successfully adopt healthy behaviors. Carol Dweck’s model of mindset differentiates those who use a growth mindset in responding to failure and those who use a fixed mindset. Growth mindset is the belief that you can change anything because you understand and accept the process by which change and mastery occurs. When you use a growth mindset, you know that it takes effort, practice and lots of failure to achieve the goal. With a fixed mindset, the response to failure is a sense of shame and blame and results in defeatism. Growth mindset needs to be at the center of all wellness programs, and employees need to learn how to shift from fixed mindset to growth mindset when making changes. This session will address how Intermountain Healthcare’s LiVe Well program does both.
