Business mindset

Nova Stevenson · 23/08/2022

The two things that affect our attention are filtering and dopamine. The cocktail effect refers to the ability to focus one’s attention on a particular stimulus while filtering out a range of other stimuli. We make around 35,000 decisions a day most of which are automatic and automatic decisions are subconscious and subject to bias.

Fixed and Growth mindsets are the foundation of your quick thinking. A fixed mindset will trick you into thinking that you need a quick fix or an ejector seat when you are faced with a problem. This mindset is deeply unhelpful, it’s pessimistic. A growth mindset is all about opportunity, it’s about framing those thoughts into something helpful. A growth mindset is more than looking on the bright side, or smiling through a grimace, it’s about grit and compassion. Fixed mindsets are subject to bias, and they thrive on labels and categories. Growth mindsets are more agile, they don’t really care about labels in the same way. Your leadership mindset can come in and help when you find you have a fixed mindset.

About Instructor

Nova Stevenson

I'm the co-founder of the Creative Entrepreneurs' Club and a digital transformation enthusiast/specialist. I began the digital portion of my career as a content editor for a national education organisation. I fell in love with organising information and simplifying how that information is access and digested on the web. I am excited by the way that digital can make learning available to people who previously had limited or no access. In 2008 I set up a digital agency with two friends and we set about taking what we learned to the social enterprise sector. We wanted to give them access to the same tools the big brands were using so that they could amplify their message and ultimately have a greater impact on their community.
