Have you ever seen a fish in shallow waters? When we’re not in the habit of adopting a growth mindset, we face obstacles like a fish in shallow waters percussively flapping for another breath and living in a constant motion for survival, not realizing the muddy suspension we create around us as a result.
The stresses and anxiety that leaders, managers, and employees are facing today as the result of the COVID-19 pandemic are creating a muddy suspension that works against them and their organizations. HR firm Morneau-Shepell reported that 32 percent of US employees feel their employer has been inconsistently, poorly, or very poorly supporting employees’ mental health during the pandemic. It’s 34 percent in Canada. On top of that, Willis Towers Watson found that 92 percent of employees are experiencing some form of anxiety from the pandemic, citing a few factors such as safety concerns, helplessness, grief, and uncertainty.
Now more than ever corporations, associations, and small businesses need tools and techniques to turn adversity into advantage. Growth mindset allows us to stay calm, gather our thoughts, and let the mud settle so we can take a breath and work to find solutions. Mehrnaz’s virtual workshops help your organization achieve clear waters.
