We know what you want.

A well-functioning organization that allows you to focus on higher impact activities.

This program will teach you how to get there.

When you develop a growth mindset in your self, your team, and your culture, you will drive the change that produces results, rather than reacting to whatever is thrown at you.

You will be able to:

  • Expand your personal comfort zone… and turn challenges into opportunities.
  • Have a team that functions like a well-oiled machine… that can solve its own problems so you can stop fighting other people’s fires.
  • Build a culture of innovation, experimentation, agility AND accountability… that grows itself.

What is the Growth Mindset Program?

PROPEL’s Growth Mindset Program is an online, on-demand course that teaches you to remove the obstacles that are holding you back at three levels: personal, team, and organization.

It’s time to expand the impact of both your leadership and your organization.

In this program, you will learn

  • About your own leadership style (through the included DiSC assessment), so you can bust out of your comfort zone and start achieving more.
  • How to have better conflict conversations, so you can speed up the performance of your team.
  • How to spot the patterns inside your culture that are causing friction, so you can start crushing your organizational goals.
  • And a lot more, including cutting-edge content around a culture of innovation, a system of accountability, a new approach to consensus, and tips for “managing up” with boards or senior leaders.
learning-outcomes

This is NOT a glorified webinar. You’ll get:

7.5 hours of bite-sized portions of self-guided reading and video content, allowing you to fit the course easily into your schedule.

Templates, frameworks, and guided activities for converting content into action.

A personality assessment, team performance assessment, and mini culture assessment—all with personalized reports.

One CEO used the growth mindset to change the way his team dealt with conflict, and they started consistently finishing complex projects both ahead of schedule and under budget.

One trade association management team applied the growth mindset to how they track and manage organizational goals and priorities and are now on their way to doubling their revenue in only 3 years.

Another association used the growth mindset to instill a true culture of innovation, committed to leading their members into the future rather than just responding to their immediate demands.

It won’t take up a lot of your time, but it will deliver dividends to you for years to come.
