As the heart of an organization, people leaders ensure the humanity and success of their organization. With so much at stake, these leaders often try to do this by focusing on behavior change alone. However, the effectiveness of both organizational and individual performance relies on the same foundation—mindset. By changing individual mindsets, individual and organizational success improves in tandem. How? By specifically adopting an outward mindset, or a mindset that focuses on results and impact on others, individuals operate with a commitment to the success of others and the organization.
An outward mindset is about seeing more fully how our work impacts, a project, other people, and the organization as a whole. Thus, by developing an outward mindset, individuals become more engaged, cooperative, innovative, and efficient, thereby unleashing and multiplying improvements in organizational performance.
