Growth Mindset

growth mindset icon

I see failures as temporary and sources of learning; I believe that effort matters more than ease. I see others’ mistakes similarly and show them grace.


  • Extract lessons learned from failures and mistakes.
  • Can name my personal contribution and remediation actions taken.
  • Approach failures/mistakes with curiosity and humility.
  • Actively seek out opportunities for growth and learning.
  • Embrace the challenge of unfamiliar tasks.
  • Am willing to take risks in the pursuit of excellence.
  • Recognize growth as iterative, non-linear, and non-sequential.
  • Can persist through moments of “failing forward.”

Less Skilled

  • Become derailed by failures or mistakes.
  • See skillfulness as innate, so do not push myself to improve.
  • Put more value on the end result rather than the process of achieving it.
  • (Overuse) Make excuses for consistently missing results.
  • (Overuse) Do not focus improvement efforts or do not tie improvement to results.
