    Growth Mindset: Growing it in the Workplace

    "Growth mindset” is a popular development topic for many leaders, but a browser search on related learning exercises for adults will yield few results. This session is designed to fill that gap through shared experiences and creative energy. Participants will learn about a session developed at Deluxe, called “Growth Mindset Workout,” and even participate in sample of activities from the session. Then, similar to a case study, everyone will review the design and development of the course – and receive a copy of all classroom materials. Finally, small breakouts will discuss and share back additional ideas for building on what Deluxe launched. Everyone should leave with a list of potential ideas to use in the design and development of their own learning program on this subject! Joel presented this session in person at the Maise Learning Conference in 2019, covering in-person facilitation. Since then (given the world we live in now), he has adapted the class to virtual facilitation – thoughts on this will also be shared.

    Experience first-hand what fixed and growth mindsets sound like in your own subconscious

    • Increase “possibility thinking” around what it takes to grow this capacity in yourself and others

    • Create a list of potential ideas for the design and development of practical exercises on this topic

    Building Powerful CONNECTIONS® in a Culturally Diverse Society

    Unconscious bias, cultural misunderstanding, language differences, communication errors and discourteous behavior undermine performance in diverse organizations. Dr. Tyrone Holmes helps participants recognize and overcome these problems using his Building Powerful CONNECTIONS® speaking and coaching programs. 

    This session will provide participants with tips, tools, and techniques they can use to enhance their ability to communicate across cultural differences. Specifically, because of this session, participants will be able to do the following: 

    1. Describe the 4 types of noise (internal, external, emotional, and cultural) and the impact each has on communication. 

    2. Apply the 5 elements of The L.U.C.A.S. Approach, which is an empathy-based communication process. 

    3. Apply skills such as the S.O.L.E.R. technique, active listening, clarification, self disclosure, metacommunication, and inclusive language to reduce noise and enhance your ability to powerfully connect with a diverse group of people.
