A mindset is a mental attitude or inclination and a person’s mindset determines how he or she approaches a task or challenge, and indeed, life itself. An individual’s mindset shapes perspective. A mindset is influenced by the individual’s values and how they are prioritised.
Everyone has their own, unique mindset, which is shaped by their values. That means that the people in your organization have different mindsets.
When there are differences in mindsets, information can get lost in communication, and the bigger the difference in mindsets, the more information and understanding is lost. Knowing the mindsets of your team enhances leadership effectiveness.
