I’ve spent years diving deep into what makes us tick, grow, and ultimately thrive in our personal and professional lives. You might know me as a Motivational Speaker or a Mindset and Confidence Coach, but today, I want to chat about something that’s really been lighting up my world lately: the Elastic Mindset.
So, we’ve heard about the fixed and growth mindsets, right? The whole idea that some of us are set in our ways, thinking we can’t change who we are or what we’re capable of, versus the belief that, with a bit of elbow grease and resilience, we can develop our talents and abilities. That’s Carol Dweck’s groundbreaking work, and it’s been a game-changer for so many.
But here’s where I throw my own spin into the mix. I’ve been talking a lot about neuroplasticity. our brain’s fantastic ability to rewire itself and how we can leverage this to not just grow, but to continuously adapt and evolve. That’s where the Elastic Mindset comes into play.
Imagine this: Instead of saying, “This is just how I do things,” you think, “I can learn to do this even better, and I’m ready to adjust my approach as new info comes in.” That’s the elastic mindset. It’s not just about growing; it’s about being super flexible, stretching beyond our comfort zones, and bouncing back with even more strength.
Why does this matter? Well, in our tech-driven world, things change at the speed of light. And I’ve seen firsthand how tech companies and organisations are hitting a wall because, while they’re ready to jump onto the next big thing, their teams might not always be on the same page. There’s a bit of resistance, a bit of hesitation because change is scary, right?
So, in my talks for 2024, I’m zeroing in on this. I help teams, leaders, and individuals to think differently and to become excited about change.
Developing an elastic mindset in today’s world? That’s like having a superpower.
If you’re keen to boost your brain’s capability, to be open to evolving ideas, and to let go of outdated beliefs to truly grow and develop, then you’re in the right place. I’m all about educating, inspiring, and, let’s not forget, entertaining along the way. Through my talks, I share stories and techniques that’ll help you stretch that mental muscle and develop your own elastic mindset.
So, if you or your organisation are ready to leap into the future with minds wide open, here I am 🙋🏾♀️
