"Does maturity impact a growth mindset?" with Rosa Ponce de Leon, Leadership Strategist

Does maturity impact a growth mindset?

I’m sure you’ve heard it said, “It’s not what you know, but what you believe about yourself that limits what you can achieve.”

The older we get, the more comfortable we are in our own skin. Over time, we let go of ego and allow ourselves to embrace our flaws and imperfections. We become more courageous and willing to take risks despite the possibility of failure.

Younger team members may not have the maturity level to fully embrace a growth mindset. They may be inhibited by fear of failure or feeling like an imposter.

If your team is stagnant and easily side tracked, look for the root of the problem, their beliefs:

  • They avoid challenges for fear of failing
  • They don’t see the value in learning new things
  • They believe you either have certain gifts or you don’t
  • They give up easily and view temporary setbacks a permanent failures
  • They see others success as a threat and a source of jealousy
  • They view feedback as a personal attack and resist coaching or feedback
  • They feel ashamed about past failures

These limiting beliefs can have a profound effect on their performance. Once you understand the root of their low performance, you can create a strategy to help them develop a growth mindset.
