This event has already taken place. Have a look at our upcoming events to see what’s coming up.
Creating a learning culture is not optional: with it, a company can dramatically transform itself, and seize considerable competitive advantage. Satya Nadella, for example, grew Microsoft’s market cap by $250 billion in four years by changing the culture from one of ‘know-it-alls’ to ‘learn-it-alls’. And today, having a company of learn-it-alls has never been more necessary, as we all urgently adapt to new and unprecedented circumstances.
What makes these highly valuable flexible thinkers so important is their ability to embrace a growth mindset, engaging with complexity and ambiguity with both curiosity and collaboration.
By understanding the intimate connection between mindset and high performance, organisations can proactively unlock this learning potential in their people and teams. In turn, this drives the innovation and agility that is so essential for a company’s resilience in our turbulent times.
Join us as Matthew Syed, author and highly acclaimed speaker in the field of high performance, shares his insights on why now - more than ever - companies must focus on nurturing growth mindset and cognitive diversity at all levels within their organisation.
Matthew’s insight spans a dazzling range of case studies, including a communication breakdown at the top of Mount Everest and a moving tale of deradicalisation in America’s deep South.
Matthew Syed has written six best-selling books on the subject of mindset and high performance – including Bounce, Black Box Thinking and Rebel Ideas. He has worked with many leading organisations to build a culture of continuous improvement. He is also a multi-award-winning journalist for The Times and a regular contributor to television and radio.
Matthew is also co-founder of Matthew Syed Consulting (MSC). The company has worked with an impressive portfolio of clients to build growth mindset cultures and drive higher performance in individuals, teams and organisations. MSC’s cutting-edge thought leadership programme and digital learning tools are a catalyst for real and lasting change within business and the public sector.
