What’s the purpose behind you finding mindset speakers for your events?
Is it to:
- Engage your team through thoughts and emotions in order to drive performance?
- Look at the individual’s beliefs or alignment to company values?
- Educate the audience on what’s possible, if they just knew how, or believed more…
The idea of hiring a mindset speaker is usually to help shift fixed mindsets and increase performance.
According to Stanford University Research mindsets play a significant role in determining life’s outcomes. By understanding, adapting and shifting your mindset, you can improve your health, decrease your stress and become more resilient to life’s challenges.
In a work environment it’s important for people to have a healthy mindset because the healthy mindset helps when passing on information and managing expectations. An unhealthy mindset in the workplace can lead to interpersonal problems when someone processes a request for example, through feelings such as guilt, inadequacy, sadness and anxiety. These feelings may have nothing to do with their job, just their mindset as they go about their job.
Are mindsets changeable?
Some people believe that mindsets are essentially fixed and therefore unchangeable. People with this belief struggle with mistakes or setbacks because the worry how they are perceived and how the mistake will affect their future.
For example, if you have a fixed mindset, you might notice that you have been clumsy with what you said at a networking event. You might then see this as evidence that you struggle to speak or connect with people. This may lead to a feeling of social anxiety and avoidance.
With a growth mindset, you know that you can change over time. In this scenario the mind is open to reflect on situations and learn and grow from challenges. In the networking scenario, someone with a growth mindset will look at what they did well, what they can do better and evaluate their performance knowing they will improve with practice.
People with fixed mindsets are not easy people to motive, change or improve. By contrast, people with a growth mindset see challenges as something that might be fun to overcome.
It’s important then that the mindset within an organisation is a growth mindset.
How Mindset Speakers help mindset growth
Mindset speakers are great at helping organisations and individuals develop the ability to:
- Build trust and meaningful relationships, at work or personally Set goals
- Be courageous
- Lead effectively
- Perform well
- Learn effectively
Mindset speakers are experts at helping to shift mindsets. A fixed mindset won’t change because someone uses logic and tells someone to change or even how to change. But mindset speakers are able to bypass this resistance by sharing stories that engage an audience’s heart and then the mind. Their stories work because they effect the audience at an emotional level.
For example, Caspar Craven uses his personal adventures, circumnavigating the globe, to shift mindset. He helps audiences see what’s possible through his stories and then shares how to apply the learning from the story.
Because the story shows the audience what can be done, taking a new action is now not so impossible. The audience now just needs to know what actions to take or how to think differently about the challenges they face.
