Welcome to a new and refreshed newsletter – we want to inform and inspire HR folks with the latest updates so stay tuned!
We discuss 🚫 cancel culture this week, which is a prominent topic everywhere and seems to be dividing generations. Do we want to continue this steep slope of finding flaws and “cancelling” someone when they make a mistake? What happens if this is applied to a poor performing employee – will it truly help if we cancel them?
We need to shift the cancel culture narrative and instead focus on finding possibilities and solutions. HR can cultivate possibilities for their teams through a ‘Growth Mindset’. According to Carol Dweck, people with a growth mindset believe that constant effort and hard work lead to increased intelligence and skill. They place greater emphasis on accepting challenges and viewing setbacks as opportunities to grow and learn.
An organisation, like an individual, can have a growth mindset and a company's culture is shaped by its thinking.
