What is a growth mindset? The chances are you’ve already heard about the work of Stanford Professor, Carol Dweck (if you haven’t, where have you been?). The increasing popularity of mindset alongside positive psychology has seen it applied within the workplace, coaching, sports psychology and education. There’s a huge buzz around Carol Dweck’s growth mindset research and how it can be used to improve performance in a multitude of areas. But what is a growth mindset and how can you develop one? We take a look at the definition of mindset, growth mindset, fixed mindset and how to grow your own.
If you’re new to positive psychology or thinking about how you can implement it on a practical level in your workplace, you’ve come to the right place. Unlike traditional psychology it doesn’t focus on dysfunction, what’s broken or what’s not working. Nope. By looking at what works it aims to create more of it. Positive psychology is a new, science backed paradigm that will enable your team to flourish, optimise performance and even, wait for it, feel happier at work. We show you how.
Could you really increase your wellbeing & resilience with sleep? Can you remember the last time you had a really good night’s sleep and woke up feeling well rested? Are you burning the candle at both ends and feeling it? Or wondering why you’re tired all the time? Maybe you’re constantly cranky? Or perhaps you’ve never really considered how your sleep affects your health but you frequently feel rundown?
Poor sleep is linked to an array of health problems from weight gain to depression and diabetes. Lack of sleep wrecks our immune system and is linked to an increased risk of cancer, alzheimers and cardiac problems. We spend a third of our lives asleep and yet the World Health Organisation has declared a sleep loss epidemic in the western world. Just why is sleep so critical to wellbeing and resilience?
Personality type and stress, we’re all different and here at PCG we say that’s a good thing, it’s what makes life interesting. It’s also what can make life complicated at work and at home when we’re stressed. Examining your personality and type and stress offers an opportunity to take a look at what might jam your inner gears. What results in stress for you may not be the same for others, we all have different triggers and respond in incredibly different ways to stress. So how do you work it all out? A good place to start is with yourself. Take our free personality test here http://positivechangeguru.com/discover-your-personality-type/ and read on.

You’re an Imposter. That’s right, you’re a fraud. Everything that you’ve ever achieved is down to dumb luck. You’ve blagged your way to where you are. How come nobody else has noticed except you? You’ve conned them all. Sound familiar? If you’re suffering from imposter syndrome you’re in good company. Research suggests 70% of us will experience the phenomena at some stage in our lives. Look around you, is it really true that everyone else is smarter than you? Perhaps they’re shiftily looking sideways in your direction and wondering the exact same thing? But how to get rid of that constant fear that you’re so fake? Imposter syndrome & how to beat it.
