Change – A New Beginning Or A Bitter Loss?

Recommendation: Change – a new beginning or a bitter loss?
As the world around us shifts, transformations also occur within us; in our mind and body. In this video, we dive into the process of psychological change – transition. When faced with change, how often do you ponder what it truly entails? What do you lose in the process of change? What do you gain in return? What can you hold onto? Gather insights and understanding about yourself and others from the video.
At what stage are you in your journey of change? If this question seems perplexing, take a peek at the video and gain a better understanding! If you enjoy the video, feel free to share the text and image above in a newsletter, on an intranet, or through Slack.

Get Courageous and Develop a Growth Mindset

Course Recommendation: Growth Mindset
What is a growth mindset? Outstanding performances and good decisions stem from our ability to think in new ways. A changing world requires us to be familiar with our own thinking. The need to learn quickly, try out new things, allow for mistakes, and experience uncertainty are all familiar aspects of our daily lives. Developing your own thinking is something you can, and definitely should do!
Through the course, you can learn to see things in a new light, develop a new approach to learning, and create a positive perception of your own abilities. You can learn to approach mistakes and failures constructively, as well as develop a healthy attitude towards perfectionism.
