Cultivating a Growth Mindset for Success

A person’s mindset determines how they manage change, create a strategy, and face challenges. It influences how we see ourselves and how we view the world around us. The belief that people can learn, grow and change is vital for organizations facing difficult economic, social and operational challenges. Importantly, we can all learn to change our mindset and look for opportunities instead of focusing on obstacles. Join host Jenn DeWall as she explores how we can all cultivate a growth mindset for success.

Leading Through the Great Resignation

Between April and June 2021, a total of 11.5 million workers quit their jobs, and a recent Microsoft survey found that 41% of workers are considering leaving their current employer. Other studies indicate that at least half of the workforce is actively seeking new opportunities. These figures should alarm any leader, as turnover is costly and harms productivity and morale. The problem of employee turnover is nothing new. However, this extreme turnover rate is a different phenomenon and will require a new approach to recruiting, retaining, and managing talent in the workplace.

"The Crestcom Bulletproof Manager course provided by Dave Lawrence is a resource of immense value for both newer leaders as well as seasoned managers. The course is structured in a way to put the often demanding task of leading people into a framework which enables people leaders to thrive under evolving requests and demands, as well as sharpens the tools already in the belt of those with strong leadership experience. Between Dave's uncanny ability to cogently steer the course where it will make the greatest impact and the depth of topics discussed, such as demographic shifts and their impact on being an effective leader, listening and dialogue techniques, and a focus on not just professional development but also personal wellness, I cannot recommend this course enough to any organization that wants to take its productivity to new heights. There is somewhat of a linear path to the course that really ties all of the elements together upon completion and left me feeling more confident and capable to tackle the ever shifting demands, not just within my company, but also with external stakeholders as well. You will not be disappointed!"

"I enrolled all the upper management of my firm, including myself in the Crestcom program. While the price appears steep on the onset, it was well worth the time and effort. One reason is that it gave prospective executives tools that would otherwise require lengthy and costly mentoring. The other thing is that in almost every session, there was that one golden nugget that I took back and applied immediately. The sessions allowed me not only the time to think about new ways to improve, but actually focused me on what and how to do it. Dave Lawrence is a superstar!"
