Mindset: Post #6--Entitled Kids
Entitled Kids in the Workforce. Raised on a constant diet of praise, these kids want a pat on the back for just showing up to work! They need constant validation and are incapable of taking criticism. Leaders should praise them for struggle and effort and not for “being” smart or talented. When it comes to negotiations, fixed mindsets underperform growth mindset negotiators by 50%. Believing that talent is static and inborn, fixed mindset managers don’t attempt to coach or develop employees, whereas growth mindsets invest in the future of others by coaching. The good news: A growth mindset can be learned.
