Greater Growth

Developing growth mindset traits with the SQI | taught by Ian Dyason

Course description

Previously known as "Developing the Growth Mindset" programme

Hi there!

My name is Ian Dyason and I am your online course trainer. I am also the Founder of Growth Consulting & Training, a company that is focused on providing individualised learning en masse. How do we do that? Well, first of all, our programmes are traits-based, this means that we break down the theory into behaviours. Then, we develop specific learning courses to grow those traits, and we put them in an online course, just like this one.

Next, all our participants go through a traits assessment called the Success Quotient Intelligence (SQI) to uncover areas where they will be strong, and areas where they may need some developmental focus. The corresponding report will then allow them to identify just what to focus on in their development, allowing them to dive into the lessons that make the most sense to them. In this way, individualise their learning. If you have not yet done your SQI Growth Mindset assessment, please sign up for it using this link...!free-sqi-assess

In this course, I will be introducing you to the growth mindset, contrasting that with the fixed. The growth mindset is the #1 requirement for entrepreneurial success, although it is not a predictor. It is also the mindset that leads to leading, to managing uncertainty, to developing new products and ideas, to driving team success. So much is linked to the growth mindset, it is a wonder there isn't more emphasis in our schools.

I hope to change this.

This course has four parts: Part One dives into the SQI and helps you understand your own profile. It also explains the interconnections between and among, the different trait sets, answering typical questions along the way.

Part Two discusses the impact of the fixed and growth mindsets on learning, and explains why the growth mindset is the preferred mindset.

Part Three opens up specific ways you can take to develop the different trait sets.

Finally, Part Four wraps it up with applications of the growth mindset in 4 specific areas - at work, at home, in business and in relationships.

Should you encounter any problem while doing this programme, don't hesitate to get in touch with me. My email is plastered all over this site, so there is no excuse not to be able to find me.

Remember, you have perpetual access to this course, so do come back to it again and again, should you need an "update" on your thinking.

Okay...enough talk!

Here's to your growth mindset success!
