3 Ways To Create A Learning Environment


credit:

"Every person's brain works in its own unique way."

That's a quote from Carol Dweck, a professor of psychology and director of the Center for Leadership and Development at Stanford University, and it's one of three key mindsets that CEOs should have in mind when creating a learning culture, Fast Company reports.

"One size fits all will never work, especially if you want to design learning opportunities that are inclusive and impactful," Dweck writes.

The other two key mindsets are empathy and expectations.

"When leaders believe people can learn, they are more likely to provide the necessary conditions (feedback, scaffolds, scaffolds) to support that learning," Dweck says.

They also need to believe that everyone can learn, and expect everyone to learn.

"If we don't believe someone can learn based on their background, role, previous performance, or disability, we won't include the necessary support in the design of the instruction," she adds.

Finally, you need to own your people.

"If you want to design learning opportunities that are inclusive and impactful, you must honor the variability of each employee," Dweck writes.
