Core Belief: Sustainable, high performance comes from a playful, growth mindset

A growth mindset is the belief that intelligence/talent/capability is something that is developed.

Fixed mindset: desire to look smart, avoid challenges, give up easily, see effort as fruitless or worse, ignore useful negative feedback, feel threatened by the success of others; Growth mindset: desire to learn, embrace challenges, persist in the face of setbacks, see effort as the path to mastery, learn from criticism, find lessons and inspiration in the success of others
Fixed Mindset vs Growth Mindset

Playfulness is a more sustainable path to high performance

Core belief: People are trustworthy

People do the right thing when they want to do the right thing and they know what the right thing is; when people do the right thing, we trust they want to do the right thing; when we trust people want to do the right thing, we’re more transparent about context; when context is transparent, people know what the right thing is

Why do we need permission to be empowered?
